Wheelchair vans accommodate the type of wheelchair you have. These vans range in size and features to fill those needs. In some cases, you may want to ride or push the wheelchair into the van to keep the individual in the chair for the ride. In other cases, you may want to fold up the chair, place it in the trunk while the individual remains in the car in a traditional seat. Determine what your specific needs are and then choose the right van or van updates to make it work for you.
There are three main types of wheelchairs that these vans may be able to accommodate in some way.
- A traditional, manual wheelchair (often folded up and placed in the back of the vehicle or in the trunk.)
- A power wheelchair
- A stand up wheelchair
When looking at the selection of handicap vans, realize that you do have options. Ability Center has plenty of options to offer for all needs. Ability Center is one of a select few that provides orthotic ergonomic seating to those who are in these chairs. More so, these are custom modeled and then molded and formed to fit your body. By doing this, wheelchair accessible vans are able to accommodate your needs while also providing you with a comfortable ride. That’s not something that is easy to come by otherwise.
It is a good idea to consider all of your options before making the decision to purchase a wheelchair van. With the guidance and selection of options from Ability Center, you will find a product that fits your needs perfectly, no matter what those needs happen to be. You can work with a Certified Mobility Consultant to learn what your options are, and how to get into the right mobility product for your specific needs.
