Anyone know of a org. that helps the disabled to get a scooter rack for auto?

No Comments 28 April 2011

Question by smilingstks: Anyone know of a org. that helps the disabled to get a scooter rack for auto?
MY insurance Company paid for me to get a mobility scooter to become mobile. However I am on a very small fixed income and raising a granddaughter also. I have no money to buy a rack to carry the scooter on the car. Currently I am still not able to go anywhere outside of my home with the scooter .I have been told there is probably a org. out there somewhere that may help me to get a rack for the car. Does anyone know of a org or club who could help me? I did have the Rotary club here in Va. that built me a ramp, but they do not fund racks for cars. Help lead me in the right direction if you can!

First, check with your city’s or county’s departments for the disabled, they might know a place locally.

If your car already has a 2 inch reciever hitch for towing a trailer, you can get a lightweight aluminum platform from Harbor Freight that’s big enough for most mobility scooters and they also have loading ramps for them.

Harbor Freight has very low prices and you can buy online if there isn’t one near you.

And here’s their scooter carrier:

I hope this helps and give the little one a hug for me … she’s got a great grandmother.

Stay Independent: Simple Mobility Aid Helps Disabled Get In and Out of Cars, Studies Find

No Comments 15 December 2010

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) December 7, 2006

Once the dust had settled, a simple low-tech invention came out on top. Twice.

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Boston conducted an exhaustive study on vehicle modifications which aid the elderly in their use of cars. Among the very best solutions for vehicle access, they found, was an invention called Handybar®.

This finding was backed up by the Cleveland Clinic’s Arthritis Newsletter, which studied the HandyBar and found it to be the easiest, most helpful new disability product to aid drivers with arthritis.

The Handybar is a patented, award winning mobility aid that can help provide independence to millions of permanently or temporarily disabled users. A portable support handle, the Handybar slips into a vehicle’s “striker”, the U-shaped bracket that appears on a car’s door pillar and keeps the door firmly closed. Once in position, the Handybar helps the mobility challenged get in and out of today’s lower cars and higher SUVs with confidence, dignity and ease.

The Handybar works on virtually all cars and requires no modifications. Small and light at only 9″ long and one pound, the Handybar disability product is made of an extremely tough alloy and is capable of supporting 350 pounds. It can be stored in a car’s glove box, door pocket or center console for quick access.

The Handybar is an ideal mobility aid for:


    Seniors

    People with arthritis, back or knee problems

    Those who are recovering from surgery or sports injuries

    Pregnant women, or

    Anyone who’d like an occasional helping hand getting in and out of cars

In addition to being an effective mobility aid, Handybart can even help save lives. Equipped with an integrated side window breaker and recessed seatbelt cutter, the Handybar could prove an invaluable escape device in the event of an accident.

The Handybar is available at a variety of retailers across Canada and the United States.
