Mobility Vans: Handicapped-Accessible Vans for Indiana Residents

Most people take a lot of things for granted in their day-to-day lives—being able to get out of bed in the morning, or being able to get into their cars. People don’t give these a second thought, but the disabled have a hard time doing even these ‘simple’ things. This is why a growing niche in the transportation industry has been looking for more ways to provide convenience to the disabled via handicapped-accessible vehicles.

Handicapped-accessible vehicles are, as the name suggests, cars that let disabled people travel in convenience. There are two types of cars that allow this: wheelchair-adapted vehicles, and factory-made handicapped-accessible vans. The former are big cars customized to allow entry and exit of wheelchairs. The latter are designed specifically for handicapped transportation convenience; the mobility van is a good example of this.

A mobility van is considered as one of the best handicapped-accessible vans because it was built from the ground-up with the needs of the disabled in mind. The need to enter and exit a vehicle while on a wheelchair is the priority, so ramps and anti-skid floors are installed to ensure the passenger’s ease of access. The van’s interior is also designed to allow maximum space for a wheelchair or a scooter, giving a disabled person more than enough space to turn a wheelchair around easily.

Unlike retro-fitted cars the mobility van has a ramp that is installed during production, which makes it durable and heavy-duty. The mobility van also has a frame similar to that of a high-powered truck—strong and dependable—but with suspension systems and engines that lets driving more convenient.

Mobility vans also ensure safety with their anti-slip surfaces, electronic stability controls, and a unique side entry ramp system that lets passengers enter and exit the van away from street traffic. Multiple grab handles and a five-foot headroom inside these vans also provide a sense of stability and convenience to passengers.

Retro-fitted cars, which came from older and bigger cars, are not very eco-friendly. On the other hand, mobility vans like most Indiana handicapped accessible vans have green energy capabilities. The owner has the option to lessen the carbon footprint by utilizing a unique natural gas fueling system that is good for the environment.

For a more convenient transportation, people with disabilities may opt for mobility vans for wheelchairs or scooters. More information on handicapped-accessible vans in Indiana are available in Disability.gov or Disabled-World.com.
