Various Types of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles
Wheelchair accessible vehicles have indeed made life a lot easier for people living with disabilities. These are vehicles that have been made with special provisions for wheelchairs users to have safe and easy entry into and exit from them. They have sufficient room for wheelchairs therefore ensuring that the disabled person is as comfortable as possible, whether they choose to be the driver or passenger.
Getting ready for a journey has become much easier as the person using the wheelchair does not have to rely on other people to help transfer them from their wheelchair into the car seat.
Different Types of Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles Available on the Market
There are a number of different WAV types, offering wheelchair space and entry mechanisms:
1. Motor-trike style wheelchair modified vehicles
This is an innovative style of disability adapted vehicle that allows you to move into the trike from the back of the car by use of an ascending ramp. The wheelchair user is able to drive about comfortably without necessarily needing to transfer to a seat.
2. Wheelchair accessible vehicles offering internal transfers for drivers
With this type of disability adapted car, you need to transfer from your wheelchair and into the driver’s seat in order to be able to drive. There is sufficient room for the wheelchair user to easily transfer onto the driver’s seat.
3. Single passenger only wheelchair accessible cars
As indicated by the name, these cars are made for transportation of the wheelchair user, as a passenger only, and therefore there is only enough room for two people in the vehicle. These cars come in various styles and with different provisions and therefore you are able to choose the one that gives the wheelchair-user the most comfortable ride.
4. Wheelchair accessible vehicles with provisions for wheelchair users to drive
