Technology

Technology has been improving our lives for decades—especially in the realm of disabilities. AMS Vans stays up to speed on innovation, and we bring that progress to you in articles that reveal how designers and engineers push the envelope to improve wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Advances in technology have enabled AMS Vans to provide you with an easy-to-operate wheelchair accessible van that gets you where you need to go. In our Technology section, we give you the scoop on disability and accessibility technologies—emerging technologies, mobility equipment, adaptive equipment for auto and home, and medical tools that help people with disabilities live and work independently. We also provide information about organizations and assistance programs that may help you pay for this technology. Definitely a good read!

How to Have a Happy Halloween!

We get it: Halloween can be a hard holiday for specially-abled families! If you don’t live in a neighborhood, that means loading up in your van after every trick-or-treat stop. Not to mention how frustrating it can be to climb up curbs or make it to the front-door of a house with stairs!

But fear not! We’ve found the solution to the Halloween Horror!

Trunk-or-treating!

What is trunk-or-treating, you ask? Instead of going house to house on Halloween, lines of decorated cars assemble for trunk-or-treaters to peer into their trunks for some Halloween candy!

Because we believe fun should be accessible, here are some van decorating ideas for anyone wanting to decorate their own van for a trunk-or-treat!

America’s Mobility Superstore is known nationwide as a leader in wheelchair van sales, but many don’t know that we also adapt other vehicles with handicap accessible equipment.

In this video testimonial, Drew, who has extensive nerve damage in his right leg, talks about and demonstrates his new Veigel Classic II Hand Controls installed by AMS Vans. The device smoothly transfers foot pedal operations to the driver’s right hand, and allows Drew to drive again!
