Wheelchair transport with "Accessible Vehicles"

Oct 15, 2013
Ambulances, taxis and wheelchair transporters are the speciality of the British company Accessible Vehicles, an offshoot of Lateral Design Concepts in Keighley, northern England. The company produces around 1000 conversions each year. On the European mainland the service is provided by conversion companies who install ready-made kits.
The company installs a recessed floor measuring 1220 mm in length and 760 mm in width in the rear of the Citan. The maximum interior height is 1400 mm. The wheelchair enters the rear of the Citan via a patented lightweight ramp with one-hand operation measuring 1275 mm in length and 745 mm in width. On request a winch is available to assist the companion of the wheelchair passenger. The company uses four-point docking systems from the specialist Q’straint. The rear docking points are self-locking and self-tensioning to ensure that the wheelchair is firmly positioned in the Citan.
Individualisation of the Citan's interior and exterior is another speciality of the company. It offers several equipment packages as well as individual solutions for an intentionally unusual appearance – wheelchair users need accept no compromises in the choice of their vehicle, and are able to treat themselves to a special and even luxurious vehicle with a conversion by Accessible Vehicles. The company actively advertises that its vehicles are not suitable for "wallflowers".
