6-Way Drivers Seat Power Base
The 6 way power base allows a wheelchair user to gain access to the driver or front passenger positions from the interior of a suitable van. The power base is generally fitted with the vehicles original passenger or drivers seat. The system operates as follows.
- The chair user transfers to the power base seat which is electrically driven into the row 2 position and rotated up to 140 degrees.
- Once sitting in the seat, the user can rotate it (electrically) till it faces the front of the vehicle.
- The seat can then be propelled forward (electrically) until it is in the required position for passenger use or for driving.
- At any point during this operation it can adjusted for height (electrically) to match the wheelchair seat height or driving height.
- Returning to the wheelchair is the reverse of this procedure.
Note that a vehicle with flat floor area front to back is most suitable for this device (ie , VW T5 Transporter, Mecedes Vito) Assesment of the proprosed vehicle is required as a first step
Assesment of the proprosed vehicle is required as a first step.

It should be every driver’s right to be safe and comfortable.

- Our goal has been to design a 6-Way Base which blends well with the vehicle’s interior design.
