Keeping a Booming Generation Mobile

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

As baby boomers age, it is becoming more difficult for people to get into and out of
vehicles. Now, automakers are responding by offering vehicles with built-in help, such as
power seat lifts.

A new device called a Sit N Lift seat is being offered in General Motors’
midsize vans, which allows easier access into the vehicle for anyone, including seniors and
the disabled. The seat is a fully motorized seat that lifts and rotates the passenger, yet
it looks like the other seats and fits without altering the vehicle. The seat comes as a
dealer-installed option, which means it comes with the same warranty as the vehicle, and
the cost can be wrapped into the same financing plan.

The new seat is part of a broader
mobility effort by GM, which includes looking at all aspects of vehicle design and
functionality for ease of use.
