Re: Handicapped Access to Salon?

But the tie's so stylish! :-)

I think the OP said his legs were the main problem.

I can see how you might use some U-channel to make brackets & use a come-along or other ratcheting winch to move a wheeled seat up & down.

Do you have room to use a portable wheelchair ramp to reduce the angle of entry?

Is there a way to mount a lift in the overhead, as some garages have?

Sorry - used to brainstorm with my customers when they had an interesting problem.
