IMED Mobility Announces Transparent Safety Ratings for VMI Wheelchair Vans
IMED Mobility has today announced transparent FMVSS safety crash test ratings for wheelchair vans with VMI conversions.
Roseville, MN (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
IMED Mobility has today announced that Vantage Mobility International conversion vans scored high in all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards testing. Transparency in safety scoring is a vital consideration for those purchasing wheelchair vans, and VMI is a leader in providing quality, reliable, durable vehicles for individuals with physical disabilities.
VMI is one of the few companies to be so upfront with their safety scores. According to Dave Hubbard, Director of NMEDA (National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association), “Over the years, VMI has been a strong supporter of NMEDA’s safety initiatives, and we appreciate their efforts in promoting fair competition and the highest safety standards.”
According to Jacque Bolduc, Supervisor of NMEDA’s FMVSS Compliance Review Programs, “For years, VMI has been one of the few mobility companies to meet FMVSS safety standards. VMI’s safety compliance program is built into the engineering of the vehicle to ensure they exceed safety requirements. They have a sharp group of engineers who manufacture these vehicles with safety as a top priority.”
VMI converted wheelchair vans including the Honda Odyssey, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country received “Pass” ratings in four key areas. These were in 50 MPH rear impact collision, 33.5 MPH side impact collision, 35 MPH frontal impact collision testing and pull testing.
