The Companion Seat is an adjustable position van seat designed for use by individuals with mobility disabilities. Designed for use with the front passenger seat of Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, and Ford Windstar minivan's, this unit utilizes the van's existing seat but replaces the seat base with a powered seat base. The powered seat base extends the seat a full 20 inches out from the standard seat location and tilts it 6 inches forward. To enter the van, the seat is moved to its full extened position, the user sits on the seat, and the seat is then retracted. When fully retracted, the seat is manually rotated and locked into the forward-facing position. The process is reversed to exit the van. A safety interlock prevents the seat from operating when not facing the proper direction. CONTROLS: One color-coded switch on the seat controls both the in and out functions. An optional hand-held control is available for those with limited use of their left hand or for attendant use.
Notes: Companion Seat is a registered trademark of the Braun Corporation. ** The manufacturer states this seat has been tested to meet all applicable requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). ** The manufacturer states this seat may be transferred to another vehicle and the original seat rturned to the existing vehicle.
