Abiliquip designed and have been making the abiLoader for 13 years and it is our flagship international product that has been sold to 11 countries and loved by thousands. The Abi-loader is a simple solution to driving mobility for disabled drivers with some very clever engineering. The Abiloader at the push of the drivers’ button opens the boot and delivers a wheelchair right up next to the driver door.

Reliability is crucial for mobility aids. We think that mobility devices should be as simple as possible to achieve the result. It is much more work to design a simple mechanism to stow wheelchairs, but we put in the effort! The design is very clever, but not complex.

Our product’s success internationally owes much to its lower complexity than other products. Its much higher reliability and simpler servicing means we have taken over many world markets completely.

Total driving independence and class-leading ease of use makes this the premium option for manual wheelchair users. For rigid chair users there is no other device that comes close.

People who use lowered-floor mobility vans should consider the Abiloader, where they are able transfer to the driver’s seat. If you did not know of the Abiloader when you purchased your last vehicle, check out the advantages of a much wider range of vehicles and features.

When I was thinking about buying one (AbiLoader), it seemed too good to be true, but it works as advertised. It allows my daughter to easily get her chair in the car quickly and entirely independently. No taking it apart, lifting it, getting dirty, wearing out her shoulders, etc.!

Carol, Tennessee

Just to let you know that I love the Abiloader! It has opened a new door to my future freedom to enjoy getting out and visiting people and places rather than avoid it because of the hassle of lifting my chair out and in! My wife also enjoys just getting in and out of the car when we are out together rather than waiting out in the rain while I put my chair in the back seat so thumbs up all around!

MH, Nelson

I thought I should let you know how pleased I am with the Abiloader. It is living up to all my hopes and expectations. Without your skill, ingenuity and determination to make it work, I am sure this would not have been possible. Your attention to detail in adjusting and modifying not only the AbiLoader, but also my wheelchair was first-class practical engineering of the highest order
