Other Options


If you can transfer out of a wheelchair without too much trouble or discomfort, you may find that a standard car fitted with adaptations suits you better than a WAV.

Adaptations are designed to make your driving or travelling experience as comfortable as possible. If you need help accessing a car, a person hoist could be an alternative option for you to consider
