Wheelchair Accessible Cars to Promote Equality

Today, nearly 3 million people in the United States use wheelchairs. This segment consists of individuals who suffer from paralysis, the loss of control over certain parts of the body. The remaining wheelchair users consist of people of all ages who are unable to keep their balance. Several decades ago, people with disabilities suffered the same discrimination against people of different races. Thanks to the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), public buildings and transportation were obligated to provide facilities to accommodate people in wheelchairs.

If a member of your family is a wheelchair user, then you would probably be aware of the difficulties involved. After all, wheelchairs are quite cumbersome without ramps. Consequently, the wheelchair user may need assistance from family members to get inside a vehicle, after which the wheelchair must be folded and secured in the trunk. Fortunately, every problem has its solution--this time, in the form of wheelchair accessible cars.

Wheelchair accessible cars are modified to accommodate people with disabilities. They are equipped with different means of entry such as a ramp or powered lift to provide easier access to wheelchair users. For additional comfort, vehicle interiors have several notable changes like lower floors, improved seating, stiffened suspensions, and an added power kneeling system to reduce the ramp's slope.

Wheelchair accessible cars in Indiana are available in two access types. Both come with their set of perks. The first type of access is the ramp. For example, they may have either fold-up or in-floor ramps. Fold-ups can be folded in half and stowed right to side of the passenger door. In-floors, on the other hand, can be slid into a compartment below the vehicle floor.

Another type of access for wheelchair accessible cars in Indianapolis is the platform lift. It can be raised and lowered from inside the vehicle to the ground. Lifts come in different types such as mono-arm lifts, double-arm lifts, and underbody lifts. The main advantage lifts have over ramps is that they act as mini-elevators that can mechanically carry someone between levels. It thus eliminates the need for caregivers to physically lift the wheelchair user.

When someone in the family needs a wheelchair for everyday functioning, the best course of action is to own one of the many Indianapolis handicapped accessible vehicles. You'll be more than thankful for the comfort and convenience they provide to the whole family. Find one now and experience quality bonding time.
