Braun Corporation Chrysler Town & Country Wheelchair Accessible Conversions

2011 Chrysler Town & Country Wheelchair-Accessible Conversion

Description: For 40 years, the Braun Corporation has been giving people their independence back with innovative wheelchair-accessible vehicles for individuals with physical disabilities to own and operate. The foundation of Braun’s conversion is the 2011 model year vehicle update engineered by the Chrysler Corporation. Braun offers the Chrysler wheelchair van conversions with side-entry or rear-entry to address the wide variety of needs in the marketplace. The most popular conversion is the side-entry model. Braun’s side-entry conversion includes a roomy interior with a flat, lowered floor. A powered entry/exit system consists of a wheelchair ramp, a sliding side door and a kneeling feature that reduces the ramp angle and makes the vehicle easier to enter and exit for wheelchair users. The conversion also includes Braun-designed Step and Roll front seats that are easily removable to allow a wheelchair user to drive the vehicle (when equipped with hand controls) or ride in the front passenger position. For 2011, the side-entry conversion design also offers increased foot room for both the driver and front passenger. The Chrysler wheelchair vans passed all front, side and 50-mph rear crash tests and are now available at more than 200 BraunAbility dealer locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Visit www.braunability.com for more information about these new models or to find a BraunAbility dealer.

Blizzerator - Ergonomic Snow, Ice Scraper

The Blizzerator snow and ice scraper makes clearing vehicles of snow and ice a breeze - even for shorter stature people.

Description: Blizzerator Reinvents Much Needed Winter Accessory … Ergonomic Snow, Ice Scraper Faster, Keeps Drivers Dry. The Blizzerator is perfect for shorter stature people and those with disabilities … The Blizzerator patent-pending ergonomic design transforms a hand-held ice scraper or snow brush to an elongated tool ideal for clearing car roofs, large SUVs and trucks. Dr. Rick Henningsen, D.C., inventor of the Blizzerator, came up with the idea after seeing his 5’1” wife try to clear 14 inches of snow from her car on a wintery morning. "The ice scraper she was using was inefficient: it was too short for her and even as she was able to remove a patch of snow, a fresh batch would pile right up again,” said Dr. Henningsen. “I had an epiphany that it all boiled down to size and shape. Vehicles aren't flat, they are curved, and they aren’t small. So why are we flailing around with small, flat nearly useless toys when we need…well, ‘weapons’ to fight back at winter?" Easy to use The Blizzerator is a large, flexible, lightweight, inexpensive tool that will quickly clean vehicles of any size without soaking drivers.
