The Honda Odyssey is refined. The Honda Odyssey is stylish. The Honda Odyssey is one of BraunAbility’s premium wheelchair accessible vans that is built on one of the most reliable chassis’ on the market today. The newest version of the, Honda Odyssey wheelchair van is one of the most stylish, fuel efficient and safest wheelchair accessible minivans available today!
Introducing the, BraunAbility® Power In-Floor, Honda Odyssey handicap accessible wheelchair van! Completely redesigned and built on the all-new Honda Odyssey chassis, this wheelchair accessible van conversion features several improvements that include: New, larger & extended cabin for improved wheelchair maneuverability; All-new, BraunAbility®, in-floor wheelchair ramp system with a 1000 lbs. capacity; Increased cargo space behind the third-row seating; and new, easier to operate “Step & Roll” removable front seats. Like you would expect anything less from the, “Most Trusted” name in mobility, BraunAbility®.
On the, BraunAbility® Power In-Floor, Honda Odyssey handicap wheelchair van, the sliding side doors and wheelchair ramp are both power for ease of operation. By activating the open or close command on the Honda’s factory key-fob or use of interior switches found throughout the cabin, the side door opens or closes and deploys or stows the on-board, in-floor wheelchair ramp.
Worried if there is a power failure? Worry no more! The ramp system on the, Honda Odyssey wheelchair van can be easily operated manually if necessary for a safe exit from the vehicle.
The all-new, BraunAbility® Power In-Floor, Honda Odyssey ramp system uses a wheelchair ramp that stows out-of-sight and out-of-mind, under the floor of the vehicle until needed. This is in contrast of a fold-out ramp system where the ramp sits folded just inside the side door. This in-floor ramp design allows for easier entry and exit by ambulatory passengers since they don’t have to deploy the ramp to enter or exit from the passenger side sliding door.
In addition, since the ramp is not inside the cabin like a power fold-out ramp system, there is more usable interior space! The wheelchair ramp on the Honda, handicap van from BraunAbility®, is also larger than it’s predecessor and is now 30.25 inches wide to accommodate today’s larger wheelchairs and mobility scooters. But that’s not all, the ramp capacity has also increased from 800 lbs. to a maximum load limit of 1000 lbs.
Standard on the, BraunAbility® Power In-Floor, Honda Odyssey Handicap wheelchair accessible van, the front seats are easily removed using the, “Step & Roll” seating system. This feature allows access for a wheelchair user to either drive from his or her wheelchair or ride as a passenger up front in the passenger seating area. The seats are easily unlocked at the base and rolled away for storage and can be reinstalled anytime.
In an effort to reduce ramp angle and make it easier to traverse the ramp of a handicap van or wheelchair accessible vehicle, every BraunAbility® handicap accessible vehicle features an automatic, integrated “kneeling” system. This system engages when the deploy ramp command is given from the factory key-fob or set of on-board switches found through the cabin.
Once activated, an actuator engages, which is mounted on the rear suspension of the passenger side. This actuator works to lower the height of the wheelchair van from the ground on the vehicles ramp side, reducing the wheelchair ramp angle.
As part of the conversion process, every BraunAbility® Power In-Floor, Honda Odyssey wheelchair van is lowered from just behind the firewall (just behind the engine), to the rear axle. The lowering of the floor does two things: First, it creates a taller door-entry height of 54.5 inches to allow for unobstructed entry for those wheelchair users who sit taller in their chairs. Second, it provides the wheelchair user a more natural direct line-of-sight while either driving or riding as a passenger up-front or in the center section of the vehicle.
