With the above models, you can have a ramp with a gentle incline to wheel up the wheelchair. Wheeling oneself up the ramp is not too difficult as the angle of the incline is not too steep. This ramp is situated at the back of the vehicle, letting the wheelchair in through the backdoors. Once inside the car, the wheelchair is strapped securely in place to maximise safety and comfort. While getting into the adapted car is relatively hassle-free, descending via the ramp can be a bit challenging as it is done in reverse.
Should using the ramp prove a little too tricky or you would rather not be assisted off the vehicle, there is another option. In place of a ramp, you can have a lift that carries the wheelchair on and off the vehicle. Operated using a remote control or manual controls at the back of the car, this lift offers a less demanding way to ascend and descend. The only downside is that the lift needs regular maintenance, which can prove costly.
After carefully evaluating your needs, you will be able to know which of the adapted cars in Hastings can be the best fit for you.
