Community access is at the heart of everything we do here at Mobility Engineering, and we endeavour to ensure that all members of the public have a practical and sustainable method of transport. A method of transport that will allow families, couples, and individuals to access the vehicle with their own transport aids safely without causing a physical toll on themselves or their passenger.
Now that people can start to travel around Australia again, we want to ensure that they are adequately equipped to be able to reach their destination of choice with ease. Pairing certain mobility solutions together can make a world of difference when it comes to travel, so we wanted to highlight these solutions in our Kia Cerato: the Turny Low Vehicle swivel seat and the Carolift 40 boot hoist!
The Turny Low Vehicle will bring the seat out of the vehicle to allow for an easy transfer into either the front passenger or driver position and does not require any permanent modification to the vehicle. It can provide various transport scenarios when you are on the road, either transferring onto a personal mobility device to help you get around and see the sights at your destination or you can remain seated but bring yourself to face the outside of the vehicle on a quick rest stop. Maybe even park by a lake and throw the rod into the water from your seating position for a quick lunch surprise!
This seat paired with the Carolift 40 boot hoist, makes travelling with a mobility device much simpler. The Carolift 40 will remove the lifting effort required as it does this for you, leaving you to simply guide your chair or scooter into the vehicle, keeping your energy and strength to visit the outdoors and make the most of your road trip.
Travelling should be fun and not a chore, even for those of us who need an extra hand getting seated or stowing their devices and we find that solutions like these can make this process less stressful so you can keep the focus on the fun. Breaking down the limitations that people face through carefully selected solutions and encouraging community access is what we enjoy doing here at Mobility Engineering, and we hope to get you and your family safely on the road!
