Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles and Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles (WAV’s)

At  All Terrain Mobility we sell high quality ‘ex motability scheme‘ wheelchair accessible vehicles, wheelchair adapted vehicles  and  mobility scooter friendly vehicles (WAV’s)

Available from All Terrain Mobility (near Southend, Essex).  Tel: 01702 540800

A wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV)  is a vehicle that has been specially adapted so that  a wheelchair user can travel as either a passenger or driver without having to transfer out or their wheelchair.

Having a wheelchair accessible vehicle can be of enormous benefit for both disabled drivers and passengers .  Travelling in your wheelchair  and not having to transfer out of the wheelchair and stow it in the boot means you can travel more freely.  If you do have somebody to help you it can also make life easier for them as they will no longer be having to lift either you or your wheelchair.

A wheelchair accessible vehicle will come with either a ramp or a hoist to allow the wheelchair user to get in . Once inside the vehicle the  wheelchair is fixed in place with a tie down system consisting of straps that need to be fixed onto the wheelchair buy hand or an fully automated docking system .  There  is also a restraint system rather like a regular seatbelt.  A drive from wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) allows the wheelchair user to drive with complete independence.  These vehicles need to be highly specialised and have automatic doors ramps and docking systems.

If you are able to transfer from your mobility scooter/ wheelchair to the car there are slightly less specialised wheelchair accessible  vehicles available with adaptations such as hoists and ramps to help stow your mobility scooter or wheelchair with ease.  This can make travelling with your mobility scooter / wheelchair a lot less effort as you will not be having to lift the mobility scooter / wheelchair in and out of the car .  A wheelchair accessible vehicle also allows you to travel with a fairly large mobility scooter – which is a lot more comfortable to ride and will go a lot further than a travel mobility scooter (which will come apart to fit into a normal car boot).
