Parvalux designs mobility vehicle motors that are specified by specialist coachbuilders.
Electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters offer a short-range mode of transport for people with mobility issues; however, for longer distances or to travel with others, an adapted car can provide a better solution. Coachbuilders adapt standard cars by adding electric folding ramps or wheelchair lifts to make them accessible for people living with mobility issues.
Since the 1970s, specialist coachbuilders have been adapting standard road vehicles and this was a giant leap from the initial ‘invalid carriage’ vehicles seen in the 50s and 60s. One of the most popular recent vehicle design trends has been in the MPV or ‘Multi-Purpose Vehicle’ sector and many manufacturers now include MPV models in their range. This style of vehicle is an ideal platform for adaptation because it offers good headroom, configurable seating and also an accessible load bed.
For mobility vehicle motors that offer excellent reliability, quiet operation and enough torque to power a vehicle access ramp, Parvalux can help. We’ll work with you to design and build a drive system that perfectly suits your application. Our design team is also fluent in the latest SolidWorks 3D CAD software.
Parvalux motors and gearboxes are also available through the global maxon distribution network. Your local maxon office can be found here.
