Similarly, in order to increase the ease of access for people with relatively small mobility aid requirements, the wheelchair accessible vehicles come with the installation of handrails to offer additional support to people with limited mobility options.
These handrails offer extra support to people with limited mobility aids. While Gilani Engineering has designed and developed the handrails for ease of access, it has also developed the Step Assist that is compatible with a range of cars, vans and busses.
This Step Assist handrail is designed to aid entry to and exit from a vehicle.
It differs from other handrails as it extends outside the vehicle using a horizontal pivot. These handrails are manufactured and are thoroughly tested to check for their reliability and usability. One of the major issues while traveling is the availability of enough space and storage for everyone.
The wheelchair-accessible vehicle ensures sufficient space to contain a wheelchair easily and even fix it for driver or passenger seat depending upon who shall be the driver; the person with mobility assistance requirements or the assisting person.
