Project: Access Lifts is a specialist firm in central Dorset offering a wide range of access solutions for different modes of transport. Understanding that wheelchair users find it increasingly difficult to access transport, the company produce a variety of options, including bespoke designs. In particular, they specialise in disabled access lifts for boats and yachts.

In May 2018, Access Lifts were awarded innovation funding to further develop a pre-production prototype of a new lift design that’s unique to the market.
