Tips on Camping for Those with Disabilities

Reposted from NMEDA

If you’re an outdoor kind of person, don’t let a disability stop you from enjoying Mother Nature, discovering travel in a whole new light or vacationing inexpensively.

The best way to get your toes wet in the camping phenomenon is to join a camping club. The dues are generally very low. It’s a great way to meet others with a similar interest (camping), attend a rally, get info on the best sites and loads of advice on how-to and where-to and when-to.

Choose from among the many club types: general ones, perhaps in your local area; or niche-specific vehicles (make of vehicle); singles; military vets; motorcycle campers; Baby Boomers and many more.

Handicapped Travel Clubs

You can also join a national travel and/or discount club, but one in particular caters to those with disabilities. Handicapped Travel Club “focuses on helping handicapped persons and their families discover travel in a whole new light.”

Also visit www.rv-camping.org for extensive lists of just about everything you should need for general RV camping anywhere.

Where do campers go? To start, there are 391 areas in the National Parks System covering more than 84 million acres. These areas consist of National Parks, National Seashores, National Forests, historical and military areas, as well as scenic and recreational trails and waterways.

Handicap Accessible Campgrounds

Yellowstone National Park welcomes RV camping, traditional tent or vehicle camping, and backwoods camping. With a little planning and preparation, those with disabilities can participate in almost all camping activities. What each campground considers “accessible” varies, so you should call before your trip so you can prepare properly. Visit www.nps.gov for more information and a list of other parks to visit.

Even with the high price of gas, camping is usually less expensive than an airplane ticket and hotel. And they don’t do body searches to get into a campground!

Plus, campers are very typically friendly so it could be a great way to make new friends.

This mobility safety update has been brought to you by NMEDA – the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association. Need some information on how to make your vehicle wheelchair accessible or upgraded with the latest and most convenient features? Contact a NMEDA dealer in your local area. Your local NMEDA member is a mobility equipment and accessibility expert!

Jocelyn Gets a Wheelchair Accessible Van!

Performance Mobility recently partnered with Chive Charities and BraunAbility to help a special young lady and her family secure a  wheelchair accessible mini-van.  Jocelyn was born with OEIS Complex, a rare genetic condition that results from a mutation in DNA.  Jocelyn is a fighter who has braved nineteen surgeries thus far to correct different medical conditions that accompany OEIS.  Jocelyn currently uses a walker and wheelchair to move around, yet in spite of her physical challenges, Jocelyn has set her sights on walking some day.  Jocelyn’s parents, Rebecca and Omar, have seven beautiful children in their family.  Not long ago, Rebecca detailed their need for a wheelchair accessible van on FaceBook.  A suggestion was to made to contact Chive Charities and before long Jocelyn was approved for a grant!  With the generous grant from Chive Charities and some additional assistance from BraunAbility and Performance Mobility, the Hernandez family was able to purchase a wheelchair accessible Dodge Grand Caravan that has made life so much easier!   Jocelyn is an amazing, determined little girl who is an inspiration to us all!

Toyota Sienna Named Best Minivan by Edmunds.com and Parents Magazine

Reposted from BraunAbility

The 2016 Toyota Sienna has achieved a new standard in style and technology, earning it a ranking of Best Minivan from Edmunds.com and Parents Magazine.

What does this mean if you’re considering a BraunAbility® Toyota wheelchair van? You’re looking at the ultimate in accessibility, design, and gadgetry. Here are some highlights to consider:

  • The Sienna comes with a Driver Easy Speak option that uses the microphone that’s part of the van’s voice-command multi-media system. So rather than someone having to shout at passengers in the rear of the van, the vehicle uses the mic to pipe the driver’s voice through the audio system’s rear speakers. If you’re a wheelchair user who has trouble projecting your voice and feel it’s hard for others to hear you when you’re on the road, this could be a huge perk!
  • We’ve become used to having all forms of entertainment at our fingertips while en route, butthe 2016 Sienna goes above and beyond. Its features include a Dual-View Entertainment Center with Blu-Ray capability, an SD card reader that can play 10 different audio and video formats from two separate sources, and wireless headphones.
  • While Toyota says the new Sienna wants to “make parenting easier,” it’s far from a “mom van.” Still, any mom would appreciate the Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology, a walk-in aisle, and multiple storage bins throughout the cabin.

Combine the above bonuses with BraunAbility’s commitment to retain the first-rate ride and handling of the Toyota Sienna and you have an accessible vehicle that’s unmatched in performance and function. (Get a closer look at how BraunAbility preserves Toyota’s engineering integrity here.)

Bottom line, the Toyota Sienna has never looked or performed better for the families it works for day in and day out. No accessible vehicle manufacturer takes greater measures to ensure that Toyota quality and performance are retained after our conversion than BraunAbility.

Don’t take our word for it alone – learn more about the Sienna’s latest accolades at Parents.comand Edmunds.com and then head to your nearest BraunAbility dealer for a first-hand experience!
