WAV Weekend generates interest from end-users and healthcare professionals for new product
Designed in response to client feedback, Brotherwood showcased its latest accessible vehicle to wheelchair users, carers and occupational therapists at its Brotherwood WAV Weekend.
Taking place over the May bank holiday weekend at the Haynes International Motor Museum, the event displayed the company’s range of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAV), allowing individuals to test drive and get “hands-on” with the vehicles.
Alongside its existing range was the new Klastar Long, Brotherwood’s newest wheelchair-accessible iteration of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class.
The vehicle, a response to clients’ request for more space without sacrificing handling, is described as “a hugely luxurious vehicle” by the company.
Featuring a full length, flat level lowered floor conversion with 57″ internal headroom and up to 6 seats, the V-Class includes a remote-controlled electric powered access ramp with STORQ self-tensioning rear restraints and a power-assisted combined winch & restraint system.
In addition to viewing the WAVs on show, VIP guests were also able to chat with expert advisers and enjoy complimentary hospitality and wonderful exhibits of one of Europe’s leading automotive museums.
The Haynes International Motor Museum is the UK’s largest collection of the greatest cars from around the world, with over 400 amazing cars and bikes including classic Bentleys, Rolls Royces and world-renowned supercars like the Jaguar XJ220.
The third WAV Weekend held by Brotherwood, the company says it is ‘becoming a must-see event for anyone in the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle market’.
