Vehicles designed for the physically disabled can offer give those with extra needs a sense freedom that the rest of us may take for granted. Since such vehicles make for important (not to mention expensive!) investments, you need to be sure that you have found the ideal one for you before handing over your money.
Side entry wheelchair accessible vehicles are the best choice for any disabled people who wish to take the drivers seat. You will also have to consider which ignition is best for your circumstances (do you need dash-mounted or key free steering wheel-mounted ignition?). Automatic transmission may also be required if doing this manually is an issue but thankfully this is built into many vehicles in current times.The inclusion of a cruise control is also imperative for those with limits to the mobility of their legs of feet.
Disability cars which comprise entry to the rear are most suited to those physically handicapped individuals who are not ever going to drive the vehicle in question.
It will also need to be decided whether lift or ramp entry is suitable and both have their own advantages. Disabled vehicles with ramp entry are generally cost less money but more rear space is required when helping wheelchair users of of these vehicles. Meanwhile, lift varieties can house larger wheel chairs and this means less space for the storage of goods or other equipment related to disability.
These are just some of the things you will need to consider when selecting your disabled vehicle. Additional information on wheel chair accessible vehicles, you should go and have a look at Motability scheme on the Constables Mobility website.
