Vehicle modifications

Vehicle assessments and modification

Vehicle modifications may be considered for a range of reasons to enable a person to drive safely, and stow their mobility aids to increase their level of independence. Vehicle modifications may also be required to allow a person to travel seated in a wheelchair and reduce the risk of injury during transfers. It is also possible to review vehicle ergonomics, transfers, and seating for an easier and more comfortable travel experience.
