THINGS TO CONSIDER
BUYING OR HIRING A VEHICLE

If you are buying a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and need to consider what adaptations you would have to have, the following may be of assistance:

Different types of adaptations

There are a number of adaptations that can be utilised on a standard vehicle or a Wheelchair Adapted Car for both drivers or passengers who have mobility problems. These adaptations enable them to drive with safety. Most adaptations feature a simple attachment that allows the original features and controls still to be used so that both the driver and/or the wheelchair user can drive.

  • Hand controls ~ this is often a push-pull device that allows acceleration or braking by pulling or pushing a lever thus avoiding the need to use the pedals.
  • Steering Aids ~ if there is difficulty holding and turning an ordinary steering wheel, a steering ball would allow more control when steering the vehicle. The ball is simply held and turns the steering wheel in the right direction.
  • Electronic Accelerators ~ this is a ring situated below or above the steering wheel that enables acceleration with less effort than a push-pull hand control. It may also be available as a trigger device. All electric accelerators come with a push brake that is hand operated so there is no need to use pedals.
  • Left Foot Accelerators ~ this is best suited to those who can still operate pedals with their left side but having lost movement in their right side. There is no need to move the original accelerator as it can be folded away and used when an able bodied person is driving.
  • Pedal Extensions ~ pedals can be extended if there is trouble reaching the pedals.
  • Remote Controls ~ these allow control of functions such as windscreen, wipers, lights, horn etc from one location, usually a single control easily accessed on the steering wheel.
