Travelling and Driving from a Wheelchair
In the past, individuals who were confined to wheelchairs did not have the opportunity to drive. Today, technological advancements can be life-changing for individuals in wheelchairs, as they can now drive from their wheelchair. Types of modifications include installing a lift or ramp enabling the person to enter and exit the vehicle in their wheelchair. The vehicle is also modified so the individual can drive from their wheelchair, eliminating the need to transfer in/out of the wheelchair. The person can use hand controls and other adaptations to drive.
Our driver trained occupational therapists are committed to helping individuals with disabilities enhance their self-sufficiency and freedom through safe and accessible driving. If you or a loved one are considering vehicle modifications under the NDIS, contact us to schedule a driving assessment and learn more about your options.
