Wheelchair and Handicap Vans for Ambulette Paratransit
As the U.S. population continues to age, the need for traveling to a healthcare provider also increases. If you’re in a wheelchair, your options are oftentimes limited, especially if you reside in a senior or assisted living facility.
What is medical non-emergency or ambulette paratransit? Ambulettes are basically wheelchair accessible vehicles that are specially equipped for transporting non-emergent people in who are in wheelchairs to and from nursing homes, adult day care centers, hospitals, medical transportation providers, EMS facilities, group homes and facilities for the developmentally disabled.
Non-emergency medical transportation is a form of medical transport for people who do not require immediate medical care. Ambulances carry medical professionals, emergency medical equipment, and are primarily used for medical emergencies or lifesaving situations. Ambulettes, on the other hand, are better suited for non-emergency travel. An ambulette is a safe and comfortable way of transporting people in wheelchairs without having to transfer them from their wheelchair, which can be painful and difficult.
