I know what a power lift is in relation to a vehicle, cant see it in relation to a house , unless you mean the stair chair?

It's essentially a mini elevator used to transport wheelchair and person from ground level up to the deck / front door.
Also known as a Porch Lift. Used where a ramp would be too long. In our case we need a 48" minimum lift.

You may want to contact Can Am Mobility in Kelowna. What you're after is a residential vertical platform lift.

If they don't have what you're looking for, they can probably direct you to someone who does.
