Testing with users

“Our team of engineers is constantly looking for even better solutions for lifting and moving wheelchair users. For Handi-Move, the customer is at the heart of the development of a new product. They are actively involved in the R&D process. We test products extensively with users in institutions and in their homes. Observing users during real-life use and listening to their feedback is a great added value.”

Just see our ceiling motor, and you'll know

“The strengths of Handi-Move's ceiling motor are undoubtedly the quality of the aluminium chassis, the metal gearing of the drive and the control electronics. Just compare the inside of the ceiling motor with other manufacturers, and you know enough.”
