Honda Odyssey Steering Devices

Are you worried about being able to successfully steer your Honda Odyssey wheelchair van? If so, you might want to consider any of the many steering devices available as adaptations. Hand controls are one popular choice. Low-effort and zero-effort steering are also available for those who can use the standard steering wheel with assistance.


Honda Odyssey Power Seat Bases

You can use a power seat base to make the transition from wheelchair to driver’s seat easier once you’re within your Honda Odyssey. These powered options allow for easy maneuvering with very little effort. They’re a popular adaptation and are not difficult to install.

 

Honda Odyssey Automatic Door Openers

Are you concerned that you will have difficulties struggling with the doors on your Honda Odyssey wheelchair van? If so, you’ll be relieved to know that there’s an easy fix for those hard-to open doors. Automatic door openers provide access with the click of a button. A second click on your keychain remote will close the doors. 

 

Honda Odyssey Hand Controls

Are you unable to use the standard pedals in a Honda Odyssey wheelchair van? If so, you do have a viable alternative. Hand controls can replace the “stock” pedals. You’ll be able to safely accelerate and brake using hand controls. They’re easy to use with a little training and practice and are a popular conversion.

 

Honda Odyssey Transfer Seats

Getting in and out of a Honda Odyssey wheelchair van isn’t that difficult. A good conversion will make it just as easy to move from your wheelchair to the driver’s seat once you’re within the vehicle. Transfer seats are designed to facilitate that maneuver with minimal efforts. Using them is much easier than trying to make the move from chair to driver’s seat without modification.

 

Honda Odyssey Raised Roofs

Raised roofs are used in wheelchair van conversions to increase headroom and entryway clearance. Honda Odyssey wheelchair van users rarely make use of this option. The preferred means of maximizing access is lowering the vehicle’s floor. Currently, the most popular conversions, including those performed by VMI don’t involve a raised roof.

 

Honda Odyssey Raised Rear Door

Most Honda Odyssey wheelchair van users convert their vehicle for side-entry. However, VMI and other conversion companies have created rear-entry wheelchair vans, as well. Those who opt for rear entry may need to raise the rear door to make easy entry and exit possible.

 

Honda Odyssey Raised Side Door

Some wheelchair vans require the use of a raised side door to provide adequate clearance and headroom within the vehicle and to facilitate easier entrance and exit. Honda Odyssey owners are usually able to secure adequate space without this modification. Instead, they drop the vehicle’s floor.

 

Honda Odyssey Remote Entry

Opening and closing the doors of a wheelchair van can be a serious challenge for some disabled drivers. Remote entry resolves the problem. A few clicks on a keychain remote can unlock and open the sliding doors of the Honda Odyssey, allowing the wheelchair user to get in and out of the vehicle without struggling with inconveniently placed handles and heavy doors.


Honda Odyssey Half Drop Lowered Floor

The Honda Odyssey provides a great deal of space, but it isn’t quite adequate “right off the assembly line.” In order to facilitate entry and exit--and to provide sufficient headroom once inside the vehicle--a conversion manufacturer can lower the floor. The Odyssey can handle half drop and full drop lowered floors. The decision of which option to make will usually be based on whether the vehicle is set for side entry or rear entry and the owner’s budget.

 

Honda Odyssey Removable Seating

In order to convert a stock Honda Odyssey into a functional wheelchair van, the owner will need to reconfigure the base seating plan. Side entry wheelchair van users will want to change the center row of seating. Those who use the less common rear entry plan will need to eliminate the third row. Luckily, removable seating is part of the Odyssey’s design. It’s easy to jettison unwanted seats.

 

Honda Odyssey Rear Bench Seat

The Honda Odyssey comes with a rear bench seat, although it is possible to explore alternatives for that area. Those who decide to convert the Odyssey for use as a rear-entry wheelchair van will find it necessary to remove the bench seat to create adequate space. Those who use a side entry arrangement will usually leave the bench seat in place to serve as a passenger option.

 

Honda Odyssey Removable Passenger Seat

If a wheelchair user plans to sit in the passenger are, he or she may want to remove the stock passenger seat. That’s also true if the driver of a Honda Odyssey knows that he or she will regular transport another wheelchair user. Removing the passenger seat is a relatively simple proposition and any reputable conversion company should be able to do the job.


Honda Odyssey Removable Driver’s Seat

Some wheelchair-bound drivers will use transfer seats to get from their chairs into the driver’s seat. Others will prefer to drive from their wheelchair. That’s made possible by removing the stock driver’s seat. It’s a simple modification that any conversion manufacturer should be able to perform quickly and easily.


Honda Odyssey Center Passenger Seat

Honda Odyssey wheelchair van users can set up their vehicles for side or rear entry. Most opt for side entry and that requires adjusting the center passenger seat configuration. Those second row seats can interfere with wheelchair access and can block wheelchair-bound drivers from moving from their chairs to the driver’s seat.


Honda Odyssey Electric Tie Downs

Once a wheelchair is within a Honda Odyssey wheelchair van, it’s important to properly secure it. One way to do that is by using electric tie downs. These motorized options are easier to use and require less physical strength than do traditional, manual tie downs. They’re a nice compromise between the manual tie downs and the more expensive docking systems.


Honda Odyssey Manual Tie Down

Honda Odyssey wheelchair van drivers often use manual tie downs as a means of keeping their chair in place inside the vehicle. They’re not complicated and they’ve been used as a means of keeping wheelchairs safely in place for decades. They’re also the cheapest way to handle the situation.

 

Honda Odyssey Four-Point Tie Downs with Seat Belts

Four point tie downs with seat belts serve two important functions within many Honda Odyssey wheelchair vans. First, the serve to secure and immobilizes the wheelchair once it’s inside the vehicle. Second, they provide additional restraint for the wheelchair user. Safety conscious Odyssey wheelchair van users may be interested in making them a part of their conversion processes.

 

The Honda Odyssey and the EZ Lock

The EZ Lock system is the most effective and simple way to anchor your wheelchair inside your Honda Odyssey. Instead of tying the wheelchair down, a bracket placed on its underside is directed into a high-strength docking mechanism that will lock the chair into place until it is intentionally released. These systems are more expensive than tie downs, but their convenience and power are unrivaled.

 

Honda Odyssey Swivel Seats

A swivel seat can make it easier to get in and out of the front door of your Honda Odyssey. Its pivoting action allows drivers to face the door while avoiding difficult twisting and other movement. They can also be used within the Odyssey to more easily facilitate the transfer from wheelchair to driver’s seat.
