Automatic Door And Wheelchair Ramp Operation
The Toyota Sienna, Northstar wheelchair van conversion from VMI, features a patented, ultra-low, in-floor, power ramp system with a 30-inch width ramp that allows for safe entry and exit by some of the largest wheelchairs. The ramp conveniently stows and deploys from underneath the floor; creating additional interior space and maneuverability for the wheelchair user and his/her passengers. The ramp is made from a high strength aluminum alloy, and can support loads up to 1000 lbs.
Automatic Kneeling Feature
In an effort to reduce ramp angle to make it easier for the wheelchair user to navigate the ramp, the VMI, Toyota Sienna, Northstar Access360 wheelchair accessible van features an automatic, integrated “kneeling” system. When a deploy ramp command is initiated, the onboard computer activates an actuator mounted on the rear of the vehicle. When this actuator is engaged, it works to lower the vans ramp side closer to the ground, thus reducing ramp angle. This option can also be turned off or on with a switch on the dash.
Removable Front Seats
The obstacle-free front seats of the VMI, Toyota, handicap accessible wheelchair van allows for easy removal. The removable seating option allows users to create multiple seating arrangements for both the wheelchair user and his/her passengers. The space up front is even large enough to accommodate two wheelchairs side-by-side if needed.
Corrosion Resistant Floor
All VMI, Northstar wheelchair van conversions have floors built from galvaneal steel. The floor is also E-coated for optimal rust and corrosion prevention. A little something that goes unnoticed to many, but ensures your VMI, wheelchair accessible vehicle is around for many years of reliable service.
Headroom And Lowered Floor
The floor from just behind the firewall to the third row seat in the Toyota, Northstar wheelchair van is lowered 14.9 inches to create the industry’s largest headroom! This drop in the floor also creates a huge usable door opening height of 57 inches. This massive lowering of the floor makes the VMI, Toyota Sienna, Northstar Access360 the ideal solution for the tallest seated wheelchair user.
