Formerly available through Barton Medical Corporation, now  known as Barton Transfer chairs are available through
Human Care Group.

Our I-Series of convertible chairs has an unlimited number of reclined and tilt positioning. The ability to frequently reposition a user significantly
reduces the chance of pressure ulcers and increases the users tolerance for long-term seating.

A sturdy frame can be equipped with a patient transfer system to enable a single caregiver to safely transfer a user to and from bed.

The I-Series Chairs have two different weight capacities to suit all needs; 181 kg/400 lbs and 317.5 kg /700 lbs.

No more wrestling with heavy loads of laundry, bags of groceries, and other hard-to-carry items! With the AmeriGlide Express dumbwaiter, moving
goods and supplies in your multi-storied home is now fast and easy. After a few days of using it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without a dumbwaiter.

The Express Dumbwaiter:
•Carries up to 100 pounds (200 pounds units are also available)
•Standard interior dimensions are 20" W x 20" D x 30" H (custom sizes available up to 30" x 30" x 36")
•5-year warranty on drive train and 2-year warranty on parts
•1/3hp 90V DC motor
•Plugs into a 115V AC grounded outlet

Faster installation than the competition. Unlike most electric dumbwaiters, which rely on complex pulley systems, AmeriGlide's Express dumbwaiter is
pre-assembled in our factory. That means there are no pulleys to install, no intricate rail systems to assemble, and no complicated wiring to figure out!
This makes installation of the AmeriGlide Express much easier than the competition.
Components of a Single Ramp Run and Sample Ramp
Ramp slopes between 1:16 and 1:20 are preferred. The ability
to manage an incline is related to both its slope and its length.
Wheelchair users with disabilities affecting their arms or with
low stamina have serious difficulty using inclines.
Most ambulatory people and most people who use wheelchairs
can manage a slope of 1:16.
Many people cannot manage a slope of 1:12 for 30 ft (9 m).

Capital Expenses
You can include in medical expenses amounts you pay for special equipment installed in a home, or for
improvements, if their main purpose is medical care for you, your spouse, or your dependent. The cost of
permanent improvements that increase the value of your property may be partly included as a medical
expense. The cost of the improvement is reduced by the increase in the value of your property. The
difference is a medical expense. If the value of your property is not increased by the improvement, the
entire cost is included as a medical expense.
Certain improvements made to accommodate a home to your disabled condition, or that of your spouse or
your dependents who live with you, do not usually increase the value of the home and the cost can be
included in full as medical expenses.
