no lift bike racks

Does anyone know of a bike rack where I don't have to lift the bike onto the rack. Ideally, I'd like to roll the bike onto some sort of platform and than have it raise with the push of a button. I've seen this sort of thing for people in wheelchairs getting out of there vans.

You might try taking your vehicle to a shop that outfits Vans etc.
with handicap access items. If anything can be rigged up they would
probably have the best ideas how to do it. We got two such shops
in my area that bend over backwards to help folks out.

I never looked into them but Some Tandem riders use an easy lift to get the tandems onto the roof of their cars. The rack come down sideways from the roof- you load and strap the bike on and then it is minimal effort to push the Tandem back onto the roof.

Perhaps an enquiry onto the Tandem section would help.
