Major vehicle modifications
Why would you need a wheelchair hoist disability car conversion?
NDIS Vehicle Modifications such as wheelchair hoists are a necessity for wheelchair users as many electric wheelchairs on the market are heavy, bulky and hard to transport. Sure the lightest weight wheelchairs weigh about 25 Kg however, even 5 or 10 Kg can be difficult for some carers to carry. Some people have young and strong children that can carry 25kg easily, however many elderly people live with their elderly spouses who cannot even carry 5 Kg. Overtime, this can cause health problems and injuries if a person constantly struggles with lifting their wheelchair. It is important to consider many different factors when organising the right wheelchair accessible car conversions. The different factors weighing in may include:
- How much can their carer lift?
- Do they live alone or with others?
- How often will they travelling with the wheelchair?
- What their physical ability is?
- What is their budget?
- How large or how small is their car?
- How high is the car boot?
- How heavy is their wheelchair?
With that information, engineers or occupational therapists can find a personalised solution and can have a clearer idea on what disability car conversion suits the individual.
