Features Overview

The VMI Honda Odyssey with Northstar conversion is a premium wheelchair conversion van providing industry-best flexibility, ease of use and functional aesthetics. The VMI Honda Northstar in-floor ramp conversion is a perfect blend of performance, safety and style, making it an excellent option for both manual and power chair users.


Ramp System

All VMI Northstar conversions come with a patented, ultra-low, in-floor power ramp that allows for safe entry and exit for even the largest power chairs. The ramp is stowed under the floor, creating more interior room for maneuverability and minimizing dirt and debris in the interior.
