The Turny Low Vehicle lets you sit up front and be an active part of the ride, even drive. From a safety perspective you are also seated as the car designer intended, in a car seat. To facilitate transfers to and from a wheelchair the Turny Low Vehicle can extend the seat cushion 40 centimetres outside the vehicle.
While swivel seats have been around for a long time they have become increasingly hard to fit in modern vehicles. Low roofs and angled door openings have made some sedan type cars nearly impossible to adapt with a swivel seat. The key issue used to be space, specifically the space between the dashboard and the knees.
Hasse Slungare, Autoadapt product designer exemplifies: “In very aerodynamic low built cars getting a seat to swivel in or out is not really the issue. Although having someone over the age of 9 months in that seat used to be somewhat of a challenge. Today we’re able to swivel a very tall person with stiff knees and size 15 shoes inside that very same vehicle. The way the Turny Low Vehicle moves makes the dashboard to knee space a non-issue. In short we’ve made vehicles previously impossible to adapt a viable choice for more people.”
