Description

Do you want more information to assist people with disability to access vehicles safely, and to find out more about the aids and systems that are out there?

On the 6th of February the ILC WA will be hosting a one-off, full training day around vehicles modifications and access. This jam-packed day will bring a wide range of experts together, to present on topics designed to broaden your expertise and perspectives around multiple ways to assist people with disability to get in and out of vehicles, the latest aids that are available and multiple wheelchair management systems.

In addition to the workshops, there will be a Totalability High Level Assessment vehicle on display with the most up to date vehicle modification technology, as well as the Mobility Engineering vehicle and the ILC transport module.

  • Crash testing wheelchairs with Amy Bjornsen from Sunrise Medical

  • Child seats, restraints and harnesses with Evana Jacobsen from ILC WA
