Braun Side-Entry Wheelchair Vans

Side-Entry Wheelchair Vans

A side-entry van gives extra room for maneuverability because either the entire floor of the vehicle is lowered or just a portion, depending on the type of vehicle.

A wheelchair user can typically drive or ride in the 1st row position (does not apply in the CompanionVan). Wheelchair users can also ride securely in the 2nd row position.

If you live in an area with plenty of handicap or parallel parking, the side-entry is a good fit because it requires extra space for the ramp to deploy.

Side-entry vehicles maintain the rear cargo storage space behind the third row seating.

Today, Braun manufactures a full line of lowered floor minivans with side-entry options:


CompanionVan Wheelchair Van

The side-entry CompanionVan offers the accessibility of a traditional lowered-floor minivan in a streamlined, economical package. With a manual door and manual bi-fold ramp, the vehicle is the perfect choice for those who will travel with an attendant. Both front seats and the rear bench seat are retained during the conversion process, allowing seating for up to four ambulatory adults with one wheelchair securement position in the center lowered floor area.

The CompanionVan floor is lowered from behind the front seat to the rear seat, providing 55” for the rear center wheelchair securement position. Tie-down tracks and a belt system are included.

If you are looking for a budget-friendly solution to your personal mobility, this innovative conversion could be the answer. Visit us today to see if the CompanionVan is right for you.
