Wheelchair Winch Assist

Designed to ease access of a single occupancy wheelchair to a suitably modified Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), Winch Assist helps both carer and wheelchair user. 

Specifically produced for supply to manufacturers and vehicle converters specialising in the adaption of standard vehicles into wheelchair accessible vehicles, NSF Controls' Winch Assist is suitable for cars, taxis, vans and minibuses.

Manufactured to meet the highest standards, the NSF Controls' Winch Assist design can be modified to create a bespoke design for more specific requirements.

Winch Assist Compact - powered for ease of use

It ensures safe, reliable and smooth entry assistance for single occupancy wheelchairs.

Used in conjunction with a ramp and vehicle mounted, Compact uses a powered reel-in and reel-out method and is supplied with a 3.5-metre belt as standard with an optional 5-metre belt available. 

Compact is supplied with a user-friendly remote control on a long lead enabling the user to operate it from outside the vehicle, if necessary.
