Equip Your Vehicle with a Wheelchair Carrier
Claim your independence and make any trip accessible with a wheelchair carrier.
Wheelchair carriers come in four basic styles:
- Automatic car-top carrier
- Bumper-mounted carrier
- Hitch-mounted carrier
- Pick-up truck carrier
A car-top carrier is an electric motor-driven hoist. Once engaged, a steel pin lowers, picks up a manual wheelchair, and the chair folds as it rises to the carrier. The carrier then closes. Each function is operated by a switch.
If your vehicle needs to include a car-top carrier, it will be of utmost importance that an mobility equipment dealer examines the car before the purchase.Among the things the dealer will be checking are:
- The actual size of the roof – will the roof be able to accommodate the carrier?
- The make of carrier in which you are interested (i.e., is it too heavy for the car model you have chosen?
