The first aspect that needs to be considered is the ramp or lift system. Its best to consult with a physician or rehabilitation professional when deciding between a ramp or a lift system. Will your loved one or a caregiver be able to push the wheelchair up a ramp or will they need a more advanced lift kit to get into the Dodge Grand Caravan or Chrysler Town & Country?
Ramps can be a better option when the overall cost is considered. Manual wheelchair ramps are the most cost effective and require the least maintenance because they require a person to attach and push the wheelchair up the ramp. Automatic ramps still require a person to push the wheelchair up the ramp, but the automatic ramp deploys electronically. Automatic ramps cost a bit more and require more maintenance due to the moving parts.
