ROTATING CAR SEAT

Elap Engineering are the original manufacturers of the world’s first almost 25 years ago. Elap seats are supplied extensively throughout the British Isles and to many countries worldwide.

Elap has always maintained the policy of wanting only satisfied customers and this is reflected in our reputation of being the leader in the design and development of rotating car seats. As an example of our commitment to the disabled Elap were forerunners in obtaining the exemption from VAT, for disabled people, on their aids

We pride ourselves on the continuous development of our products and now manufacture ‘in-house both the rotating/sliding unit and the upholstered, fully reclining seat. Testing of the complete seat unit and of its constituent parts is carried out both ‘in-house’ within our testing facility and by an Independent Testing Authority. This is to ensure that our units meet the required stringent safety standards.

The rotating seat units are individually designed to suit each model of car thus optimising all aspects such as headroom and legroom and are constructed to the highest standards to withstand continued use by the heaviest person.

EasyHarn

The Elap EasyHarn range has been developed to offer postural support to children and adults to keep them in an upright sitting position. They fit most types of vehicle seats including single, double, low or high backed seats.

 







Braiden International Swing Out Seat

The power swing out seat unit has been designed for improved rear side door application in most vans. Emphasis has been placed on maximizing the vertical travel of the seat unit. This allows easy installation into larger vans that have a greater floor to ground height.

The power swing out seat unit turns out of the vehicle and descends towards the ground, it also travels away from the side of the vehicle during its descent. It can be stopped in any position during this process by simply releasing the control switch. The unit can be operated by the passenger or the attending caregiver.

At the end of the seat unitís outward travel, the passenger can easily complete a transfer to a wheelchair at the suitable required height. This seat unit is not only suitable for the private user, but is a valuable aid in the transferring of elderly rest home residents. Once inside the vehicle, if required the passenger can transfer to a fixed seating position and the seat unit can be deployed for other passengers.

 




TURNY - Mini Buses & Vans

The Turny System is a swivel motorised car seat lift, especially designed for cars with a little higher floor level - mini buses and vans.

Turny is available for both left and right side installation The Turny makes it remarkably easy to enter or exit a car and it is also beneficial as a standing-up aid. Turny's variable raising and lowering function is ideal for wheelchair users who can easily place the seat to the correct height to be able to transfer themselves sideways to or from their wheelchair.

The design and the variable height possibilities make this seat easy to use both for the user and the helper.

Turny can be used both in the front or back and on the near or off side. Depending on the user's needs and the car model.

It is advantageous to combine Turny with a Carony transport wheelchair If more head or leg space is required we recommend a special low built seat (The BEV-Seat). Other practical accessories make it easy to equip the seat according to your special requests or requirements. The lower seat is available as an option.



The cars original seatbelts are used.

Modifications to the car are minimal and the car can easily be returned to its original condition, when the time comes to change vehicles

Installation must be done by trained technicians who are responsible for the functionality and safety both inside and outside the car.


TURNOUT
- Cars

Turnout is a swivel base which makes it possible to turn the seat out over the car's doorstep when entering and exiting the car. The base is mounted on the adapted bracket, which itself is mounted on the car's original foundation on the floor.

A low built seat, such as a BEV seat, is mounted on the swivel base. The BEV seat is designed for maximum leg and head space.

Turnout is an improved edition of the Caro swivel base. Many years of experience has been taken into its development.The result is a new swivel base which appeals to both the user and the installation technician.
 
Using the swivel base simplifies day to day living for the user who has reduced mobility as well as saving the back strain of the person who helps with the lifting in and out of the car.
 
The goal has been to develop a well-designed, crash safe, easy mountable and functional swivel base. We believe that has been achieved
