At Van Products, our goal is that individuals with impaired mobility, whether from birth, a recent accident, or only temporarily during physical therapy, have the comfort of knowing that there are options. We are active proponents of accessibility awareness and want to keep you up to date on accessibility news. Here are a few of the most exciting stories from this spring:
More Freedom Through Technology: Wheelchair users need the ability to roll across many different types of terrain and researchers at Florida A&M University-Florida State University College of Engineering have been studying and testing new technology that will detect different and difficult types of terrain and automatically adjust traction and control settings on a wheelchair so that movement can proceed safely.
Traveling With Ease Locally and Internationally: Don’t be daunted by traveling in your wheelchair. We’ve collected a few of our favorite travel tips to highlight a few exciting opportunities.
University and Workplace Handicap Accommodations: The Raleigh area is home to three universities and each one has distinctive services which they offer to those students who may be disabled.
Each day at Van Products we come into work and have the privilege of guiding people through the process of bringing mobility into their lives. We want to do everything in our power to make accessibility a priority in America. Well-equipped handicapped accessible vans are the first step to getting you moving.
