5 Reasons to Use the Travrsa-LT Instead of a Standard Transport Wheelchair
Many wheelchairs on the market are advertised as “transport wheelchairs”, but what does that truly mean? Just because a wheelchair is designated as a “transport wheelchair” doesn’t mean that it meets the rigorous safety standards necessary for use as a vehicle seat during transit. In fact, many of these products are made from flimsy materials that don’t stand a chance in the event of an accident.
Instead, choose a transport wheelchair that was designed especially for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT), such as the Travrsa-LT. Investing in an NEMT wheelchair ensures that you’re getting a product that has been crash-tested to meet the highest standards in durability and passenger safety. Even better, the Travrsa-LT was designed with the needs of NEMT operators first in mind.
1. Crash-Tested for the Ultimate Safety Rating
All Travrsa-LT Transport Wheelchairs are crash tested by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI). According to the standards set in Annex A of Section 19 of ANSI/RESNA Wheelchair Standards, Volume 4: Wheelchairs and Transportation: Wheelchairs Used as Seats in Motor Vehicles, often referred to as “WC19.” Testing includes a frontal-impact test at 30 mph with a crash dummy occupant secured in the wheelchair. After impact, UMTRI evaluates the design and performance of the wheelchair, including:
- Wheelchair securement points and vehicle anchor points
- Lateral stability of wheelchairs during travel
- Vehicle-anchored belt restraints
- And much more
Before purchasing your next transport wheelchair, check to make sure it has been crash tested to meet these standards.
2. Better Passenger Comfort
One of the major advantages of using the Travsa-LT wheelchair is that it offers exceptional comfort, making it the perfect solution for those who use Non-Emergency Medical Transportation services. Unlike a standard, lightweight transport wheelchair, the Travsa-LT wheelchair is designed with a Comfort Tension Seating system that provides optimal pressure relief and comfort for the user. Furthermore, the wheelchair is equipped with a tilt and recline feature that allows for customized positioning, providing maximum comfort and reducing the risk of pressure sores. In addition, the Travsa-LT wheelchair is designed with an ergonomic backrest and seat that conforms to the user’s body, providing excellent support and comfort throughout the day. This makes the Travsa-LT wheelchair a much more comfortable option than a standard transport wheelchair, ensuring that users can experience your services in complete comfort.
3. Reduced Risk of Driver Injury
Unlike a standard, lightweight transport wheelchair, the Travrsa-LT was designed with the operators in mind. Rather than lifting passengers in and out of the transport wheelchair, the Travrsa-LT lays flat, like a stretcher, and passengers can simply slide from their bed into the wheelchair. Pressurized cylinders make it easy for a single operator to lift the passenger into an upright sitting position with no strain on their back.
Another great feature of the Travrsa-LT is the bicycle-style hand break, which can be used to stop or slow the wheelchair while going down ramps or hills, when engaging the wheel lock wouldn’t be possible.
4. Designed Especially for NEMT
Travsa-LT wheelchairs are specifically designed with NEMT operators in mind. They are easy to use and require only one operator, as opposed to the typical two-person lifting method commonly used with standard transport wheelchairs. This not only ensures greater efficiency but also minimizes the risk of injury to the NEMT operator. Additionally, the Travsa-LT is highly durable and built to last, minimizing the need for frequent replacements and repairs. This makes the Travsa-LT a cost-effective solution with a high return on investment for NEMT operators. The Travsa-LT is also designed with user safety in mind, with features such as secure locking mechanisms and a weight capacity of up to 450 lbs. Overall, the Travsa-LT wheelchair is a superior option for NEMT operators, delivering excellent user comfort, durability, ease of use, and safety.
5. Guaranteed with 10-Year Warranty
To ensure that you get the most out of your investment in the Travsa-LT Transport Wheelchair, it comes with an industry-leading 10-year warranty. That is double the length of warranties offered on standard transport wheelchairs of lower quality. This extended warranty provides peace of mind knowing that your investment will be protected for years to come. With the Travsa-LT Transport Wheelchair, you can rest assured that your passengers will experience maximum comfort and safety while also enjoying long-term reliability from your purchase.
The Travsa-LT Transport Wheelchair is the ideal choice for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation operators looking to provide their passengers with a safe and comfortable transportation experience while increasing trip revenue. With its tilt and recline features, ergonomic backrest, and Comfort Tension Seating system providing superior comfort during transit, it’s clear to see why passengers request the Travrsa-LT for their travel. NEMT operators love the crash-tested safety standards and an easy one-person lift operation that reduces operator strain.
