An assisted spring seat height optimization lift device and method of use thereof is presented herein. The device is generally comprised of a seat frame attached to a scissor lift assembly that can be moved by engaging a releases mechanism attached to a lifting mechanism. The device is used to lift a handcycle user to a height that is manageable to transfer to a wheelchair independently without impeding the functionality of the handcycle.
