F-Winch is a device to tow the wheelchair onto the vehicle access ramp, safely and effortlessly (therefore no pushing is required up the ramp). Vehicles with lowered-floor are becoming increasingly popular, but sometimes the slope of ramps can be so high to make the entrance of the wheelchair into the car not as easy as it looks. F-Winch handles towing operations in your place safely and comfortably. F-Winch is available in different sizes and shapes in order to adapt to different vehicles, it perfectly integrates with the interior of the vehicle and is designed to ensure all passengers the highest degree of safety and comfort.

F-Winch can be activated with a remote control with continuous speed control and self-return system of the scroll wheel in the neutral position. The certified system allows adjusting the loading and acceleration speed while providing comfort and safety.
