Top 4 Mobility Solutions for Caregivers

In honor of National Caregivers Day, we have decided to share our picks for the best auotomotive mobility solutions designed to help make the important tasks of a caregiver easier. Here are the top four mobility products we love for caregivers and their loved ones.

1. BraunAbility Turny Evo

The BraunAbility Turny® Evo mobility seat is the #1 selling handicap vehicle transfer seat for SUVs, trucks, and vans that moves completely outside the vehicle and lowers it down to your desired level. This makes it easier for a caregiver to assist with transfering into a vehicle.

Why We Love It

  1. Versatility The Turny Evo is very versatile, which means you have more options when choosing a mobility solution that will best fit your needs. The Turny Evo is compatible with hundreds of SUV, truck, and van models. Furthermore, it can be installed in the driver, front passenger, or mid-row position of many vehicles.
  2. Technology The Turny Evo has the optional feature to be controled via Bluetooth from your smart phone.
  3. Speed Travel time takes only 35-65 seconds depending on seating position and vehicle application.

2. Armstrong Scooter Lift

When it comes to stowage lifts for your moblity scooter or power wheelchair, there are lots of options available. But nothing comes close the reliability, simplicity, and versatility of the Armstrong Lift.

Why We Love It

  1. Compact The Amrstrong Lift offers the most compact design for an interior stowage lift. Not only does this mean you don’t have to sacrifice cargo space and third-row seating, it also allows you to stow larger mobility devices into smaller vehicles.
  2. Removable The lifting arm of the unit can be removed from the vehicle without the use of tools. Not going to be using your lift for a while? Need the extra room to transport a larger item? No problem!
  3. Interchangeable If you have multiple vehicles that are compatible with the Armstrong Lift, you can have a mounting plate installed in each vehicle and transfer the lifting arm between vehicles when needed. This feature makes the Armstrong Lift an economical choise.

3. Q’Straint QLK-150

The Q’Straint QLK-150 is an automatic docking system for an occupied wheelchair. This product makes the caregiver’s  important task of securing a wheelchair in the vehicle as simple and quick as possible.

Why We Love It

  1. Simplicity The QLK-150 automatically secures the wheelchair for you eliminated the need of a caregiver to bend down to mess with securement straps.
  2. Independence Many wheelchair users are able to operate the QLK-150 docking system without any assistance from a caregiver which provides a greater feel of independence.
  3. Safety The QLK-150 will notify you if the wheelchair has not been properly secured into the base. It also eliminates the possibility of user error that can occur when using traditional securement straps.

4. BraunAbility Chrysler CompanionVan

The BraunAbility Chrysler CompanionVan was designed with the caregiver in mind. It offers all of the features of a side-entry vehicle that a caregiver depends on at an ecomical price point.

Why We Love It

  1. Adaptability The BraunAbility Chrysler CompanionVan has many customizable options including a power ramp option as well as a 2nd-row jump seat for an additional seating position.
  2. Simplicity The CompanionVan is simple to use making travel an enjoyable experience for the entire family.
