(SUSPENSION) SOLUTIONS FOR WHEELCHAIR TRANSPORT
When conveying passengers, you obviously want the journey to be as comfortable and safe as possible for your passenger. They should feel comfortable and confident at all times as they travel to their destination.
It isn’t always easy to get the weight distribution right when the
vehicle is carrying someone in a wheelchair. The extra weight of a
wheelchair together the person using it means the vehicle is often
loaded unevenly on one side.
If the weight cannot be distributed evenly with an unbalanced or
maximum load, this can cause the original suspension to ‘sag’ at
the rear of the vehicle, with a detrimental effect on ride comfort.
A constant ride height is therefore essential for both the driver of the
wheelchair-accessible vehicle and the wheelchair user – whether or
not this is the same person.
