VMI / Tuscany Ford Full Size Wheelchair Vans
Why choose a full size Ford van for
your mobility application? The answer is simple... if comfortable seating
for up to seven passengers combined with a spacious "trunk"
for all the things you take on the road are important to you a full
size Ford mobility van is the only solution. Full size vans offer many
optional accessories that make accessibility and comfort a seamless
part of your everyday transportation routine.
Take a look beyond the surface of
the full size van and you will see the clear advantages of the many
optional adaptive features offered. A long list of options and the combined
experience of two of the industry's leaders... imagine the possibilities
for your next van.
Lowering the floor 6" allows
the person using a wheelchair to remain seated at the appropriate height
and offers a natural view from the interior of the van. Another benefit
of a lowered floor over a raised roof is convenience in everyday driving
Tuscany's raised roof option allows
for more headroom than a 6" lowered floor van plus additional overhead
storage. Roof supports add structural integrity to the chassis to compensate
for metal removed in the raised roof and raised door process.
Tuscany's raised roof with raised
doors is ideal for those who sit higher in their wheelchair. The raised
door allows for more height in the entryway of the van.
Front driver or passenger transfer
seats swivel 90 degrees at the touch of a button, allowing you to transfer
from your wheelchair to either front seat, quickly and easily. Six-way
operation lets you make adjustments up, down, forward, back and rotation
right and left.
