There are a couple of types of handicap mobility seating options on the market today for your car, truck, van, or SUV. Mobility seating is seating options for your car, truck, van, or SUV that help users with limited mobility or users of wheelchairs safely transfer, enter & exit their vehicles. Mobility seating help by lifting and lowering to levels making transfers easier and safer by taking out of the equation the varying vehicle heights of vehicles.
The first device type and most commonly used mobility seating option is called a turny seat.
This seat replaces the factory seat in a vehicle to help users with limited mobility enter and exit their vehicle safely. A turny seat does what its name says, it turns outward from the vehicle, lowers closer to the ground to allow for a safe transfer, and back up inside the vehicle. It works by a remote control pendant to allow a user with physical challenges/mobility limitations to operate the seat. To learn more about Turny mobility seating options, click on the BraunAbility and/or Adapt Solutions buttons below. Both of these manufactures provide turny mobility seat options.
The second type of mobility seating option is a lifting platform like the XL Seat from Adapt Solutions.
This seat works alongside the factory seating in a vehicle to assist in lowering and raising a user in and out of a car, truck, van, or SUV to make a safe transfer to or from his/her wheelchair or mobility scooter. Think of this type of mobility seating as a moving platform/board; no seat is attached. To learn more about this type of mobility seating click on the button below for XL Seat.
The third type of mobility seating available today is called a 4-way or 6-way transfer seat.
This is a type of mobility seating that is found inside a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. It works inside the vehicle as a power seat on steroids! The seat allows a user in a wheelchair or mobility scooter who has entered their wheelchair-accessible vehicle to easily and safely transfer from their wheelchair or scooter into the driver or passenger factory seating. From there the users can drive or ride as a passenger in the front seated position and not from their wheelchair.
