Ease of use. It eliminates the stress of backaches for the caregiver since it is no longer necessary to pump up the hydraulic lift. Push button power is the way to go, especially when it has to be used multiple times during the day.
Have not found any problems with the product, except for needing help in putting it together. The main problem is that the insurance companies don't see that a product of this type is a necessity for older couples who don't have the strength to use the manual lifts.
