Mobility Features

DOOR ENTRY

This system is used to improve the entry and exit from the vehicle

HAND CONTROLS

Hand controls are designed to enable drivers to control the brake and accelerator with their hands instead of their feet. Pedal functions are retained so the vehicle can be driven without using the adaptations.

STEERING AID

Steering aids are designed to allow full control of the steering wheel with only one hand, making driving and manoeuvring far easier.

SWIVEL SEAT

The turnout swivel seat is designed to aid entry and exit from the vehicle along with allowing the seat outside the vehicle in order to make it easier for transfer from a wheelchair.

Driving Adaptations


Driving Adaptations are solutions designed to improve driving comfort, safety and experience. These sorts of adaptations are normally positioned around steering with Hand Controls, Remote Controls and Accelerator/Pedal Modifications.


Stowage Solutions


Anyone who requires a scooter or wheelchair knows that travelling by car can be tricky when the car in question is unable to store the assisting equipment. Stowage adaptations allow the driver to easily store wheelchairs or scooters in the car through internal vehicle modifications and Car Boot Hoists. Alternatively, you can choose to store your equipment on top of your car through clever Rooftop Stowage.

This isn’t the only option and we are more than happy to arrange a no-obligation appointment to demonstrate the different options available to you.
