Stairways are the biggest obstacles to the mobility of the disabled.Sitting in a wheelchair, they can travel any place whenever they want. However, once they happen to encounter a stairway, they become helpless. They are forced to stop and wait until someone comes to help them. This is where a wheelchair lift comes in. A wheelchair lift helps the disabled with access in buildings and subways. It gives them a heightened degree of independence and mobility.

Established in 1991, Shinwoo Frontier Co. Ltd. is a leading provider of wheelchair lifts. With the vision of becoming the front runner in the wheelchair lift industry, the company has been making constant efforts to upgrade product quality and technological level. As a result, the company has been supplying wheelchair lifts to subways, railways, public buildings, schools, hospitals, and churches in Korea.


When it comes to a wheelchair lift, safety is the most important thing. Shinwoo’s inclined platform wheelchair lift ensures a high level safety to the elderly and the disabled. Its inclined platform wheelchair lift is manufactured in compliance with domestic and international standard such as KS B 8825 and ISO 9386-2, and is fully equipped with full protection devices such as wide platform, fully automatic front stopper, and protection bars. Its quality and performance are certified by the K-Mark, Patents, utility models, and industrial design rights. It also has acquired performance certification by the Korea’s Small and Medium Business Administration and DNV (Det Norske Veritas) certificate, an international safety standard. It is suitable for stairways in public places.

Vertical Wheelchair Lift

Another main product is Shinwoo’s vertical wheelchair lift. It is an economic and efficient alternative to elevator or inclined wheelchair lift as it occupies minimum space and doesn’t need structural modification or additional building work. It helps the elderly and the disabled to enter and exit the building conveniently.

Through constant endeavors in product development and performance improvement since 1998, the company has earned a good reputation as a credible company in the international and domestic markets. They have subsequently gained a number of awards and certifications including one patent and one pending patent, six utility models, one industrial design, two registered trademarks.
