The BraunAbility®, Power In-Floor, Toyota Sienna handicap wheelchair van is low maintenance with a hidden wheelchair ramp system. This wheelchair accessible conversion is spacious. In fact, there’s enough door opening height to accommodate the entry and exit of wheelchair users sitting up to 54 inches. The in-floor ramp design is a breeze to operate and it eliminates any issues of a fold-out ramp, such as blocking the entry from ambulatory passengers entering & exiting the vehicle. In addition to its unique in-floor ramp design, the Power In-Floor, Toyota Sienna wheelchair accessible van features BraunAbility’s, long list of standard features: Single touch power entry & exit system; Power sliding doors; Automatic kneeling system (which helps reduce ramp angle); Removable front seats to allow for up-front passenger or from-the-chair driving.
On the BraunAbility®, Power In-Floor, Toyota Sienna handicap wheelchair accessible van, the vehicles’ sliding side doors and ramp are both power for ease of operation. The entire process can be operated from the factory key-fob! Even if you have a power failure, the ramp has a built-in, backup power source and can even be operated manually if needed.
The ramp the Power In-Floor, handicap wheelchair accessible van is 30.25 inches wide and is made of lightweight aluminum. It has a load capacity of 1000 lbs. The ramps surface is powder-coated with a durable, non-skid finish and is slotted to help with the removal of debris. There is even a smooth transition plate that works to lower the traditional elevated joint where the ramp meets the van. This transition plate helps to further reduce the elevation of the wheelchair ramp making it easier for wheelchair users enter the vehicle.
In an effort to reduce ramp angle and make it easier for a wheelchair user to enter and exit, all BraunAbility®, Power In-Floor Toyota Sienna handicap vans & wheelchair accessible vehicles feature an automatic suspension “kneeling system”. When the deploy ramp command is initiated, the on-board computer activates an actuator on the rear suspension. Once engaged, the actuator works to lower the vans ramp side, thus reducing ramp angle for the wheelchair user. This option can also be turned off or on with a switch on the dash if necessary for alternative loading situations.
As part of the wheelchair conversion process, the floor of the BraunAbility®, Power In-Floor, Toyota Sienna handicap van is lowered from the firewall (just behind the engine), to the rear axle. This lowering of the floor does two things: First, it creates a taller door entry of 54 inches to allow for obstruction-free entry. Second, it provides the wheelchair user a direct line-of-sight while either driving or riding as a passenger.
Standard on the BraunAbility®, Power In-Floor, Toyota Sienna wheelchair accessible van, the front seats are easily removed. This allows access for a wheelchair user to either drive from his or her wheelchair or ride as a passenger up-front. The seats are easily unlocked at the base and rolled away for easy storage, and can be reinstalled anytime.
