Wheelchair Accessible Vans Wheelchair accessible vans offer flexibility interior space and reliability. Accessibility refers to the design of products devices services or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” and "indirect access" meaning compatibility with a persons assistive technology. Types of Wheelchair Accessible Vans 1. Side-Entry Wheelchair Vans A side-entry van gives extra room for maneuverability because either the entire floor of the vehicle is lowered or just a portion depending on the type of vehicle.

2. Rear-Entry Wheelchair Vans In a rear-entry vehicle the wheelchair user rides in a channel installed in the middle of the floor from the second row to the rear of the vehicle. 3. Standard Height Vans A standard height wheelchair van typically offers between 52” and 55” of headroom at the ramp entrance doorway. 4. Extra Tall XT Height Vans An extra tall XT offers over 55” of doorway height at the van’s entrance. 5. Foldout Ramp A foldout ramp allows you to drive next to a curb and deploy the ramp over the curb for easy entry and exit. 6.

Benefits of Owning Wheelchair-Accessible Vans  Less Pain: Wheelchair-accessible vans usually don’t require you to transfer from wheelchair to car seat. This prevents unnecessary pressure on the shoulders if the wheelchair user is doing his/her own transfer or the back if the move is being done by a care giver.  Saves Time: Getting a wheelchair user into a van with a ramp or lift system is usually easier and more efficient than trying to get both the user and chair into a vehicle separately.  More Freedom: If you can drive a mobility van allows you to get where you need to go and do what you need to do without requiring too much assistance. It also makes the job of a care giver simpler which means wheelchair users can be taken almost anywhere. For more information please visit: http://www.automobility.com.au/
