We at VMI pride ourselves for getting lots of feedback from wheelchair users and caregivers when we are developing new products.   We are currently in the process of developing a new wheelchair van and need your feedback!  Before our engineers get to the next step of finalizing designs we need to ensure we are on the right track.  We are requesting feedback on the following:

– Is the wheelchair ramp easy to get up and into the van?  Does it lower enough for easy entry and exit?
– Is the headroom sufficient?  Can taller wheelchair users sit comfortably in the van?
– Is the door opening height and width sufficient?  Can larger wheelchair users fit through the doorway with ease?
– How is the wheelchair maneuverability once inside the van?  Can larger powerchairs easily maneuver their chairs inside the van?

Not only will we have a VMI wheelchair van with the Northstar in-floor ramp, but we will also have a competitor’s handicap car & van available as well to compare and contrast.

If you are in the Phoenix area and are interested in participating in this focus group, please contact DJ Todd at djt@www.vantagemobility.com, or call at 602-304-3268.  Space is limited.
