For many wheelchair adapted cars are a necessary part of life. A family car that also provides the flexibility to transport around a family member or friend who uses a wheelchair. For those whose lives have recently or suddenly changed and now have a family member, friend or themselves using a wheelchair vehicle it can be a huge upheaval.
From day to day tasks, getting around at home adjusting to life in a wheelchair (even if it’s not long term) can be a difficult learning process for everyone affected.
Quite often transport is not at the forefront of peoples minds when they begin their journey as a wheelchair user. It’s not until they need to get to an appointment, a meeting or simply meeting up with friends that the realisation that a new family car is called for.
