Stevens, John H.
PAM Repeater, n63 Sep 1990
This newsletter issue describes 3-wheeled scooters and van lifts that can assist a person with a disability to drive independently or have access to transportation. The section on van lifts compares hydraulic lifts and electric lifts, lists manufacturers, and offers an "assessment quiz" outlining factors to consider in selecting a van lift. In the section on battery-powered scooters and 3-wheelers, such features are described as power and drive systems, batteries, steering and control features, braking, seating, and armrests. A list of manufacturers and questions to consider when selecting a 3-wheeled scooter are included. (JDD)
