WHEELCHAIR ACCESS CARS DURHAM
Durham is a city full of interesting places to visit. For most people an outing to the Oriental Museum or the Botanic Gardens is easy. For wheelchair users, however, getting to different places can be exhausting and difficult. Just imagine how great it would be to have your own wheelchair access car in Durham.
Wheelchair accessible vehicles make travelling safe, comfortable and easy for disabled people. They have lifts or ramps to get into the vehicle and the wheelchair is then secured, usually in the rear part of the vehicle. Most modern wheelchairs have special attachment points designed for this purpose. Some chairs have even undergone crash testing to make sure that they are suitable for use in a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
Safe, Comfortable And Easy
Even if you have an older model wheelchair it is quite likely that it has attachment points and will be suitable. For automatic docking systems, a plate or spigot can be attached to the wheelchair. The suppliers of wheelchair access cars in Durham can assess your wheelchair and give you advice. They can help you to decide which tie-down system would suit you best.
Your wheelchair will need to be fitted with a head restraint to help prevent whiplash in case of an accident. A special seat belt is also required to ensure that you are held securely in the chair under all circumstances. All of the wheelchair access cars in Durham will have passed rigorous tests to ensure that you will travel in complete safety.
