Ready for a Handicap Van?

Handicap van shopping is just as exciting as it is intimidating for anyone new to the world of accessible vehicles. As any mobility specialist or current BraunAbility owner will tell you, purchasing a handicap van is noticeably different from purchasing a standard minivan. There are a multitude of reasons why buying a handicap van is beneficial to the quality of life both to you as a wheelchair user, but also to your friends and family. Read through some of the intrinsic benefits of owning your mobility freedom and consider how a BraunAbility handicap van could help you achieve a better overall quality of life.


BraunAbility also has wheelchair SUVS and wheelchair lifts if you want something other than a handicap van.

BraunAbility Maintain Mobility

Maintain Mobility

The switch from a traditional vehicle to a handicap van or wheelchair SUV allows you to remain in your wheelchair as you ride or drive preserves physical strength and allows you to avoid injuries or falls that could further reduce your mobility. Additionally, you’ll maintain your independence and overall health when you are able to attend family events, community projects, and personal appointments when needed. With a BraunAbility handicap van, you are in control of your timetable and health.

BraunAbility Eliminate Transfer

Eliminate Transferring Pain

The neck, shoulders, arms, and wrists usually bear the brunt of transferring pain. Therapists end up treating a patient for injuries that could have been prevented if he or she was in a wheelchair van more suitable for his or her condition. With a BraunAbility® accessible vehicle, the days of working through pain to transfer into a vehicle are over.

BraunAbility Feel Less Fatigued

Feel Less Fatigued

Despite the justifications, many find it difficult to deny nagging shoulder pain, decreased tolerance for the hassles of car transfers and chair loading, or the simple fact that they don’t have the energy they once did. Making “the switch” allows for more energy to face your day.

BraunAbility Face the Future

Face the Future

Transfers may not be difficult now, but is it realistic to expect the same five years from now? What can you expect in terms of your strength, lifestyle, pain tolerance, and stamina? Is it practical to stay with a car if your strength has been decreasing while your pain increases?

BraunAbility Relief For Caregivers

Relief for Caregivers

Whether it’s your full-time or part-time job, caring for the needs of someone with a disability can be all-consuming, both physically and mentally. As you age, errands or appointments become next to impossible when transferring your friend, family member, or client into a vehicle. The pain and time spent doing a transfer is completely eradicated with a BraunAbility handicap van when you are able to roll those you are caring for into the vehicle and strap them down in their wheelchair.
