Wheelchair Vans: Direct vs. Local – pt. 3 of 6

Wheelchair Vans – Buying Direct vs. Local – Part 3

Our video series with Assistive Technology Specialist Burnie Blackmon continues as we focus on another important aspect of the wheelchair van buying process: making sure the van will work for you! While that may seem like a no-brainer, choosing adaptive transportation is more difficult than you may realize, especially if you’re trying to do it sight-unseen. A multitude of factors need to be taken into account, from the type and size of your chair, to where you will drive the van, to who will travel with you – all this and a few hundred other details will affect your decision.

In this segment, Burnie relates a cautionary tale from the early days of the Ability Industry that drives this very important point home: buying a handicap van or wheelchair lift is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Each van or lift must be custom-fitted to meet the unique needs of the individual. Whether it’s installing important add-ons such as hand controls, power transfer seats or electric tie-downs for your wheelchair, you will need face-to-face interaction with your local BraunAbility Dealer to build a system that will work best for you.
