The exact operation may vary some with the type of lift, the chair and sometimes even the person in the chair. For many lifts you will back the chair onto the lift and secure it to the lift by locking down the wheels and with a belt that goes across the front of the chair and person, you put on the wheelchairs brakes and then you activate the switch that raises or lowers the lift. Once the lift has reached the destination you will remove the lockdowns, release the brakes and wheel the person onto the vehicle, stage, sidewalk, or wherever the destination is. To operate a wheelchair lift first make sure that if there is a way to secure the chair you do so. Once the chair is secure the lift will have a remote or a control panel allowing you to use the lift to get the char up or down.
