Even if you’re not driving, the simple act of getting in and out of vehicles can be a showstopper. In fact, the ability to get around at all is often a challenge. PME offers solutions for a huge range of passenger and everyday mobility needs.
Things that help you move
When parts of your body don’t work like they should, you need to get creative. When the challenge involves getting in and out of vehicles, you need creative engineering.
We will design and fit anything from a simple transfer board (PME Easyslider) to rotating car seats and a range of wheelchair and scooter storage solutions. If the challenge calls for transfer from, and storage of a wheelchair, we’re up for it. In fact, if there’s anything we can do to help you move, we’ll have a go.
Things that help you work
Most of our work involves passenger vehicles but we are not limited to these. We’ve engineered sophisticated transfer solutions for heavy duty working vehicles. One of our clients needed access to a large tractor, obviously a difficult task, not least because of the harsh treatment these machines get. Another client needed to get back into his Grader for his living. He ended up at PME because we’ll go where others won’t, and he was soon back at work.
Wheels onboard: Wheelchair and scooter passengers
There are many options for getting wheelchairs and scooters into vehicles (mostly larger cars or vans), and restraining them. There’s even the option of dockable wheelchairs, which allows the seat of the wheelchair to become the seat of the vehicle.
- Entry ramps and lifts
- Dockable seats
Transfer and storage
For cars that won’t accommodate a wheelchair or scooter, there are a variety of transfer and storage options. In most cases, the client transfers from the wheelchair to the vehicle seat and the chair is stored by sophisticated mechanical lifts.
- Transfer: Swivel seats, Occupant lifts and Transfer boards
- Storage: Roof mounted, boot mounted and boot hoist
PME will also supply a range of vehicles that have been modified to suit the general needs of wheelchair passengers. Individual needs are then catered for and the client is ready to roll.
While vehicle conversions are our core business, we are often asked to provide other products to help people get around. We supply a small range of high quality products including:
- Lifestyle wheelchair
- Shoprider scooters
- RPV all-terrain vehicle
