Nepal Technical Assistance: Vehicle Ramps and Lifts - Part 3

| 0 Comments

From May 14 - 23, 2014 I will be traveling through Nepal providing technical assistance to the tourism industry on accommodating travelers with disabilities. This article looks at purchasing a vehicle modified for ease of use by someone who uses wheelchair.


This consumer-focused video series by BraunAbility TV on selecting a wheelchair-accessible van is an excellent starting point for a technical discussion whether you are an individual purchasing one vehicle or a business looking for a fleet of reliable vehicles.

 
We've put together a very informative video series to help you understand the things that can affect a wheelchair van's reliability, durability, safety, and performance. Our goal is to make sure that you get a wheelchair accessible vehicle that will satisfy your needs for years to come. There are 9 parts in this video series, including the introduction. Each video takes an in-depth look at the engineering, design, and manufacturing of the different vehicle systems within a minivan that's been converted for handicap use. The videos cover braking systems, exhaust systems, fuel systems, sliding door systems, suspension systems, electrical systems, and vehicle underbody. And then we wrap everything up with a video, called 'Making the Right Choice'.

Here is a list of links to the complete series. Note that you have already seen the first video above:
