The complex of transport hoisting devices for disabled people is designed to get wheelchair invalids into a passenger coach and back to the platform.

The complex comprises two devices to fit a staff car, the right one and the left one. The devices are electro-hydraulic driven folding platforms installed on both sides of the vestibule at the unbraked end of the car. The platform lowered to about the ground level lifts the wheelchair set on it to the rail car vestibule floor and links to it. The opposite sequence of actions enables a person in wheelchair to be moved down from the train. The device is carried in the transfer (folded) position.

The device’s design saves place in the vestibule and does not affect the free passenger flow when in the transfer position.

The device is well suited for both high and low platforms. In the automatic mode the device is operated through a remote control panel installed in the stand of the pull-out platform base or through a fixed console in the control box of the car vestibule. In manual mode (when automatic mode is unavailable) a manual drive can be used to actuate the device.

The hoisting device has an obstacle gauge to stop the platform from lowering down if it meets any kind of obstacle. It is also fitted with an overload gauge halting the device in case of over 30% of excessive weight; has sound signals for extreme positions and obstacle alarm, light indication of the transfer position, and platform lights.
