Inventor of the Wheelchair Lift

In the world of wheelchair lifts for vehicles, it was a man with need in 1966 that paved the way to inventing the world’s first wheelchair lift for a vehicle. His name was, Ralph Braun. Ralph came up with the idea for a vehicle wheelchair lift after succumbing to a debilitating disease that put him into a wheelchair at an early age. Ralph had a need, a need to get to his job, and it was this need that sparked a revolution in the mobility industry. Ralph went on to start the Braun Corporation out of a realization that he needed to help others like himself regain their mobility.
