Vehicle Conversions A vehicle conversion modifies the original vehicle to accommodate a wheelchair or mobility device. The most popular conversions are done on minivans because they are the most spacious and affordable passenger vehicles. There are now some conversions done on sport utility vehicles. To accommodate the height needed for a passenger in a wheelchair, the vehicle is modified with a lowered floor. The lowered floor may be throughout the vehicle in order to allow access to the front row seating, or the lowered floor may be only in part of the vehicle if access to the front row is not required. A ramp is included to allow easy access to the vehicle either through the side or rear of the vehicle. The most common wheelchair vehicle conversions are available for: Dodge Caravan (and Chrysler Town & Country) Toyota Sienna minivan Honda Odyssey minivan Safety and testing Top manufacturers such as BraunAbility, Vantage Mobility and Savaria crash test their conversion designs to meet the highest safety standards including Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and CMVSS in Canada. Always check with the manufacturer or local dealer about the safety standards for the vehicle you may be interested in purchasing.
