Where To Begin: Accessibility Options
Vehicles can be adapted in many different ways, but the options are almost always dependent on how the wheelchair user plans to use it on a day-to-day basis. A few questions to consider when initially thinking about what you need are:
- What’s the ideal location for the wheelchair user to sit in the vehicle?
- Will the wheelchair user be driving?
- Does the wheelchair user want to transfer out of their seat?
- Is the wheelchair positioned at an extended height or width?
After those questions are answered, you can begin to look into the various accessibility conversions available to fit your vehicle needs. A few of the most common features include hand controls, transfer seats and ramp or lift style.
