Vehicle Turning Seats


After a bit of a hiatus from adding new content to the Mobility Basics website I’ve added a new section about turning seats for vehicles

Turning seats aid a user accessing a vehicle by turning out of the vehicle and in some cases lowering down to make accessing higher vehicles easier.

The turning seat section of the mobility Basics website is part of a larger project I’m working on that will, in the end, provide a lot of information about vehicle products and adaptations.

The Evacuscape rescue chair is a lightweight wheeled chair that caregivers and emergency workers can use to transport mobility impaired people down staircases in the case of an emergency where the elevators can not be used.

The use of an evacuation chair reduces the chances of injury for both the user and those assisting in their evacuation.

New Products Added

I’ve just added two new products from ConvertaStep to the New and Unique Products section of the website.
Welcome Mat Ramp
The first product is a Welcome Mat Ramp the lifts to create a threshold ramp when needed by wheelchair and scooter users. Its available in three sizes for thresholds up to 8″ high and can be purchased as a motorised version for those who aren’t able to lift the ramp.
ConvertaStep Lift
The second product is the ConvertaStep Lift that is a simple little lift to allow people to access porches and decks up to 33″ high without the need of a huge ramp or expensive porch lift.

Diago Cabinet Lift

Diago Cabinet Lift

I have added two articles in the New and Unique Products section that I think can be of great benefit to wheelchair users and people who have trouble accessing their upper kitchen cabinets.

The first, known as the Diago Lifts, isĀ a mounting system for the cabinets that will lower the upperĀ cabinets and bring them forward with the touch of a button. These lifts can be used on a single cabinet or a row of several cabinets and are available in several sizes.

Verti Shelf Lift

The second, by the same company, is the Verti Lift. This system leaves the upper cabinets in place but lower the shelves inside the cabinets down to the countertop through the bottom of the cabinet. For those who don’t need the lift for access the shelves can be accessed normally by opening the cabinet doors.
