One of our favorite topics of conversation when it comes to
our wheelchair vans and mobility vehicles is safety; and not just how safe they are, but what we did to
prove their safety. That's where crash testing comes in. Every time we develop
a new design, we build it just as if we were building a wheelchair van for a
customer. The vehicle is then put through a series of comprehensive crash tests including a 30 mph frontal impact, a 50 mph rear impact, and a 33.5 mph side impact. Each of those test is followed by a 360 degree rollover. Then a team of technicians
and analysts take pictures and measurements of almost every part and piece on
the van and then send us a report. To this date we have never had to crash a
new design twice.
In every test, our vehicles have met or exceeded all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards(CMVSS) standards.
