VMI / Tuscany Ford Full Size Wheelchair Vans
Why choose a full size Ford van for your mobility
application? The answer is simple... if comfortable seating for up to
seven passengers combined with a spacious "trunk" for all
the things you take on the road are important to you a full size Ford
mobility van is the only solution. Full size vans offer many optional
accessories that make accessibility and comfort a seamless part of your
everyday transportation routine.
Take a look beyond the surface of the full size van and you
will see the clear advantages of the many optional adaptive features offered.
A long list of options and the combined experience of two of the industry's
leaders... imagine the possibilities for your next van.
Lowering the floor 6" allows the person using a wheelchair
to remain seated at the appropriate height and offers a natural view from the
interior of the van. Another benefit of a lowered floor over a raised roof is
convenience in everyday driving and parking.
Tuscany's raised roof option allows for more headroom than
a 6" lowered floor van plus additional overhead storage. Roof supports
add structural integrity to the chassis to compensate for metal removed in the
raised roof and raised door process.
Tuscany's raised roof with raised doors is ideal for those
who sit higher in their wheelchair. The raised door allows for more height in
the entryway of the van.
Front driver or passenger transfer seats swivel 90 degrees
at the touch of a button, allowing you to transfer from your wheelchair to either
front seat, quickly and easily. Six-way operation lets you make adjustments
up, down, forward, back and rotation right and left.
Tuscany has joined forces with VMI, a manufacturer and distributor
of the most reliable, highest quality and most easily accessible transportation
in the world. VMI's mobility products enable consumers to travel with comfort,
convenience and peace of mind. Combining winning technologies, our companies
have joined together to better serve the growing and changing needs of the mobility
