Company description

The Rotational Transfer Lift (or "RTL", patent pending) is NGMS's proprietary lift technology developed to enable physically handicap and elderly users to move themselves independently from a wheelchair to another sitting position such as a Toilet or Bed.  It can be used without the assistance of a caretaker and has applications far beyond its use in transferring patients in hospitals and convalescent homes.  For example, ADA and Air travel laws mandate travel accessibility requirements for airlines and this device facilitates air-travel for wheelchair bound passengers who need to transfer between wheelchair and airplane seats.   It also has similar application in Businesses where a business needs to make their workplace accessible for handicapped employees.  With a cost of ownership in the $5K range and a COGS of less than $1.5K, the resulting margins support a vibrant business model encompassing consumer, B2B and B2Enterprise markets.
