Wheelchair accessible cars in Dorset
There are two options when it comes to wheelchair accessible cars in Dorset. You can have the car adapted for the wheelchair user as a passenger or as the driver. If you will be driving the car, you have the liberty of choosing between cars in which the wheelchair can be fitted into the driving area and shifting to the driving seat from a wheelchair on the passenger side. To facilitate the latter option, some cars come with a transfer seat that swivels.
Specially designed controls for wheelchair users
The beauty of wheelchair accessible cars in Dorset is that they give physically challenged individuals a good measure of independence. You can be able to get onto the vehicle using a ramp that stretches from the door of the car to the ground. This ramp can be automatically deployed at the push of a button. Once inside the car you strap the wheelchair in place and put on your seatbelt. Using specially designed controls you can then proceed to drive yourself wherever you want. The level of independence you can gain is however also determined by the nature of your disability.
