The LiftPod is a personal, portable aerial work platform designed as an alternative to ladders. Powered by any standard 18-volt cordless drill or an optional power pack, the LiftPod gives users a 360-degree range of motion at a working height of up to 14 feet. It can be assembled by one person in less than 30 seconds, and because of its light weight, it can be moved around a job site by a single person.
