Vantage Mobility International (VMI), a Phoenix-based manufacturer and distributor of wheelchairaccessible full-size and minivan conversions, has launched its Fiorella Platform Lift. Based in Cervia, Italy, Fiorella has designed, built, and sold lifts for more than 15 years and distributes its products in over 47 countries. VMI is the exclusive dealer of this innovative product for the U.S. market.

The lift’s cutting-edge materials provide high strength, low weight, and a compact size. The lifts are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and to integrate beautifully with the vehicle interior.  The external platform covers can be painted to match the vehicle interior as well. A standard jewel-like keychain remote accompanies the product.


“Current platform lifts are visually dominated by steel frames and exposed mechanical components, but the Fiorella lift features a striking design,” explains VMI President Doug Eaton.  “We understand the importance of providing our dealers and customers with a product that is not only reliable in its function but is also elegant and integrated into the vehicle’s overall design.”

The lifts are available in left- or right-arm configurations for end-users’ unique needs, while semi-automatic and fully automatic versions are available for caretakers or independent drivers. The lifts also have a detachable control unit that can be placed anywhere in the vehicle.

The Fiorella platform lift comes with the following features:

-An anti-crushing sensor that prevents the lift from injuring users

-Smooth and quiet operation

-Rattle free when vehicle is in motion

-30-inch usable platform width

-42-inch usable platform length

-A 500-pound weight capacity

“The Fiorella lift features an LCD interface that has a multi-language capability and produces visual messages for maintenance reminders,” notes Ted Larson, vice president of engineering at VMI. “It’s the only lift with this resource in the U.S., and we are the only company that has this product available to dealers and consumers. Using our Certified Sustainable Quality (CSQ) System, we’ve increased the level of our manufacturing process to ensure every product performs as it should, including the Fiorella lift.”
