The is a swivel seat designed for those who find it difficult to enter a vehicle or make a transfer from the wheelchair. Installed as a layer between the vehicle’s floor and the car seat the swivel seat enables the car seat to be rotated facing outwards. An added bonus is that the rotated seat will be a little bit further out, in other words, closer to the user.
A swivel seat is one of the most common adaptations fitted for disabled passengers in Ireland. It is imperative that Motability Ireland's engineers be contacted prior to your vehicle purchase to confirm the suitability of the vehicle but also the condition of the intended user.

'Just a small email to thank you for fitting the swivel seat in my new car. I am now able to take Dad out with a lot less hassle. I was delighted that you were able to retain the original manufacturer seat as I had mentioned the swivel seat is only used at the weekends. I am happy that you wouldn't know a swivel seat was fitted at all. Thanks again, see you in two years please God.'
