Vehicle Mobility Adaptations For People With Disabilities in Luton 

 

At PB Conversions we cover various areas in Bedfordshire including Luton. We design, manufacture, and install vehicle mobility adaptations to enhance your mobility and independence, addressing both upper and lower body disabilities. At PB Conversions we are dedicated to providing the best vehicle assistance by offering adaptations to all our valuable customers which will empower them to be positive about themselves and come back on the roads. Our dedicated team prioritises your specific needs throughout the process, ensuring that driving becomes safe, convenient, and accessible. If you reside in Luton, our mission is to help you regain your vehicle independence.

What vehicle adaptations do we offer? 

Customer safety, comfort, and affordability are the three promises we swear on. We work relentlessly to meet the individual needs of our customers and provide them with customised vehicle or mobility adaptations that suit their needs and requirements. At PB Conversions, we provide a wide range of vehicle adaptations, crafted just for you. 

Drive from the Wheelchair

Drive from the wheelchair adaptations enable individuals to drive from their wheelchair and empower them to operate the vehicle directly, either as a driver in a wheelchair-accessible vehicle (WAV) or as a passenger seated in the wheelchair. This enhances independence for wheelchair users, providing a range of solutions tailored to meet individual needs.

Steering Aids & Power Steering & Brakes

PB Conversions provides steering aids like extensions or grips, enhancing comfort for those with limited upper body strength or mobility. Additionally, we can lighten a car’s steering or brakes to reduce effort. Various grip options, including ball and lollipop grips, cater to diverse needs and can be applied to any vehicle.

Left Foot Accelerator

Designed for individuals facing challenges with their right foot, our left-foot accelerator provides a solution for left-foot acceleration. The PB Conversions left foot accelerator is equipped with pedals on both sides of the brake pedal, ensuring a straightforward operation. Users can easily pull down the needed pedal, causing the other to flip up out of the way. This functionality remains consistent, even with an organ-style accelerator pedal. Additionally, we offer the installation of a left-foot accelerator alongside a quick-release pedal guard for the right pedal, providing a bespoke solution to accommodate diverse needs.

Hand Controls

PB Conversions designs hand controls tailored for individuals with limited or challenging use of their lower limbs, prioritising comfort and ease of operation. These controls empower users to manage vehicle acceleration and braking using their hands. Whether addressing physical disabilities or seeking a more convenient driving experience, our hand controls can be adapted to fit individual needs. We also offer the flexibility to install controls from other manufacturers based on customer preferences.

Seat Adjusters 

We offer various seating alternatives and modifications to provide enhanced comfort and support for individuals with disabilities across different areas in Bedfordshire including Luton. Our options span from rotating seats to the inventive Carony system, presenting a variety of selections for secure and comfortable travel. These seats, managed through a remote control, are available in both electric and manual configurations. Additionally, we provide the flexibility to elevate seats or extend seat runners, accommodating individual requirements and preferences.

Hoists

Boot hoists enhance vehicle accessibility and convenience. We offer a range of options tailored to specific needs, vehicle types, and items users need to lift into their vehicles. Whether you need assistance in selecting a boot hoist or determining the perfect fit for your requirements, PB Conversions is here to help.

Roof Stowage Systems

The roof stowage system helps to store the wheelchair on the roof of the vehicle. The chair topper serves as a better alternative in comparison to traditional boot hoists for lifting the wheelchair, preserving necessary storage and seating space inside the vehicle. Topper will drop a manual folding wheelchair to either the driver or front passenger side but can only be set up to drop to one side.

Remote Control Devices

Remote control devices, attachable to the steering wheel or other preferred locations, provide easy control over secondary controls such as indicators, lights, horns, washers, and wipers. The transmitter sends a radio signal to a control box which is connected to your car. The controls are great for people who find driving with two hands a challenge or can only drive with one hand.

We can also fit mini keypads which can be fitted directly onto the push-pull hand controls for easy access to these functions.

Space Drive System

Space Drive vehicle adaptations by Paravan empower individuals with limited strength or mobility to operate a vehicle effortlessly. Microprocessor-controlled driving aids enable control of braking, acceleration, steering, and other car functions. This adaptable system manufactured by Paravan can be customised to meet individual needs, providing unparalleled freedom for desired journeys.
