Serving the Seating & Wheeled Mobility Professional
The Turny Evo seat moves completely
outside the vehicle and lowers to a level that
facilitates safe transfers. Once seated, the
user pushes a button, and the seat lifts the
person up and rotates into the vehicle. This
solution is ideal for older clients who have
trouble getting into SUVs, trucks or vans
that sit higher off the ground. Caregivers
will appreciate knowing their loved one can
get into their vehicle without risking a fall
or injury. The Turny Evo is powered via a
hand-held remote or optional smartphone
app. The operation takes 35-65 seconds in
total travel time, depending on the desired
seating position and type of vehicle.
BraunAbility’s newest wheelchair accessible
SUV is coming in the summer of 2020.
Built on the Chevrolet Traverse, the SUV
pairs sleek styling with the roomy space of
a wheelchair-accessible minivan. With 46
percent more space at the rear cabin when
compared to BraunAbility’s Ford Explorer
conversion, wheelchair users can finally own
an accessible SUV without sacrificing room
to maneuver. The side-entry conversion
features a power in-floor ramp that is
2" wider than the BraunAbility Explorer.
The sliding door is reinforced for reliable
operation, and the doorway is 54.5" high,
accommodating even tall power chairs.
The Turny Evo rotating seat creates a safer way to get in and out of vehicles. It is designed for people with limited mobility, including wheelchair users who can transfer into a vehicle seat. The Turny Evo fits more than 150 vehicles, such as full-size vans, pickup trucks, minivans and SUVs. The seat is fully powered to rotate, extend, and move up, down or backward, and it can be installed in the driver, passenger or mid-row seat positions, depending on the vehicle.
BraunAbility’s MXV combines advanced technology with the space-saving Ford Explorer. The result: An accessible SUV with a power door, kneel and ramp system, plus redesigned, removable front seats to enable the wheelchair user to drive, ride as a passenger or ride in the center. The sliding front shifter provides extra space up front. Outdoors adventurers can add the optional tow package. The MXV has a 28.5" door opening width, 55" door opening height, an interior height of 59" and a 28"-wide ramp.
