Do More with a Wheelchair Accessible Pickup Truck
Several NMEDA member manufacturers provide equipment that will allow people with certain disabilities to drive a pickup. With the ability to tow and transport boats, campers and other gear, a truck can not only be an exciting addition to your life, but can also multitask as your family’s primary mode of transportation. For this type of adaptive vehicle, it is generally accepted that a person will need to have the ability to transfer from their wheelchair.
Several manufacturers produce power lift-and-swivel seating that can facilitate easy transfer. When combined with a power lift that can hoist and store a wheelchair and/or scooter in the bed of the truck, it can allow the driver to maintain their independence and freedom.
Purchasing an accessible vehicle is a big decision and should be carefully researched. Be sure to pay your local NMEDA dealer a visit in order to fully assess your needs and determine if a wheelchair accessible truck is the best option for you.
