The UK's Mobility Roadshow has been showcasing mobility innovation for over 30 years, and was back at the Silverstone Circuit for 2016. The event provides the perfect opportunity for anyone seeking to regain or maintain independent mobility to gather information, speak to experts and compare comfortable driving options.
The event saw hundreds of young and novice disabled drivers alike, comparing a wealth of accessible vehicles, mobility scooters, ramps, wheelchairs, hoists, adaptive driving controls and independent living innovations for personal mobility.
With independent mobility of huge importance to older drivers as well as those with disabilities, the Mobility Roadshow held a range of hands-on demonstration for comfortable driving. Swivel seats and easy-release handbrakes are ideal for those suffering from arthritis or other painful conditions that can make mobility difficult in later years.
Lucky drivers were given the chance to test drive adapted dual-controlled vehicles, accompanied by experienced professional drivers on the iconic Silverstone circuit! Visitors also had the chance to participate in free disability sports throughout the three-day event, including tennis, Powerchair Football and Wheelchair Basketball.
