Accessible Truck

If you're looking for a way to increase your mobility with more power and cargo capabilities than a traditional wheelchair van, an accessible truck could be the perfect choice for you. Accessible trucks are created by modifying existing trucks with mobility products to make them wheelchair accessible vehicles. The trucks require minimal modifications to the floor and body of the truck so that it can accommodate a wheelchair lift while still providing the ability to transport large cargo. They are available in a variety of body styles and offer a reliable and safe ride to accommodate large wheelchairs and passengers. Not only do these trucks provide a higher ground clearance, more powerful engine, and larger cargo space than the average wheelchair van, they also offer greater hauling power for heavier equipment. With an accessible truck, you can experience the freedom of the open road with confidence, knowing that your mobility needs are safely and securely provided for.

Full-Size Accessible Vans

Full-size wheelchair accessible vans provide numerous benefits for wheelchair users, allowing them to travel more conveniently and safely. These modifications include a lowered floor and widen doorway, as well as a wheelchair ramp or lift, for easy entry and exit. This is beneficial as it allows wheelchair users to travel without having to rely on assistance from others. Additionally, these full-size vehicles offer more space and comfort than smaller vehicles, so wheelchair users can sit comfortably while bringing along additional passengers. Finally, these conversions provide wheelchair users with greater independence and freedom, allowing them to move around more easily.

Accessible SUVs

Wheelchair accessible SUVs are a great option for those who need a vehicle that can accommodate their wheelchair and other mobility aids. This conversion and build can benefit users by providing them with a reliable and comfortable vehicle that is tailored to their specific needs. Wheelchair accessible SUVs allow those with wheelchairs to travel independently and with greater ease. These vehicles are equipped with a wheelchair ramp that makes it easier for wheelchairs to enter and exit the vehicle. Additionally, the interior of the vehicle can be modified to accommodate wheelchairs and other mobility aids. This means that the user can recline or adjust their seating position to suit their comfort level.

The BraunAbility Chevy Traverse is a wheelchair-accessible vehicle designed to provide disabled individuals with the independence of a full-size SUV. This vehicle is equipped with a power side-entry ramp, allowing for easy access for wheelchair users. The ramp is made of lightweight aluminum and is operated via a remote control, making it easy to use. The interior of the Traverse is also wheelchair-friendly, offering ample headroom and an adjustable floor height. The seatbelts are designed to accommodate wheelchairs, and the vehicle also has a manual transfer seat to allow for easier transfers. In addition to the accessible features, the Traverse also has a number of convenience features such as a rear-view camera, keyless entry, and a power liftgate. The interior is spacious and comfortable, offering plenty of room for passengers and cargo.
