Makes life easier and offers a greater degree of independence
The degree of independence it affords the user is one of the considerations you need to think through while shopping through disability vehicles in Solihuli. Those that work with a ramp will need another person to unfold it before you can wheel yourself up into the car. And though the gradient of the ramp is usually small, some wheelchair users might find it hard to push themselves up it.
Should you wish to get into the car without anyone’s help you might consider investing in one with a lift. With this variation, you need only wheel yourself onto a flat platform which then lifts you and the wheelchair into the vehicle electrically. While this feature makes life easier and offers a greater degree of independence, it has its drawbacks. Chief of these is the electrical operation, which has a higher chance of malfunctioning than the manual ramp.
Pennywise wheelchair users in Solihuli will also note that lift-operated disability vehicles cost more than those that use ramps.Factor in this bit of information before you decide which vehicle to buy.
