There are a lot of considerations that need to go into wheelchair transport within vehicles to ensure that the wheelchair occupants position is safe for travel, we will cover everything from vehicle selection and purchase, relevant laws, regulations and liabilities, identifying the passengers needs and transporting them in a safe and suitable manner. The occupant’s safety restraints will also be covered to ensure all occupants within the vehicle will be as safe as possible in the event of an accident.
