The Best Products and Warranties in the Industry

B&D manufactures transfer seat bases for both the driver and passenger positions for virtually all makes of minivans and full size vans. We work closely with the wheelchair van conversion companies to understand their requirements so we have a transfer seat base designed for their vehicle as soon as it is available at the dealership. Safety, ease of use, and reliability are the primary concepts that go into every B&D Independence design. Our goal is to eliminate or greatly reduce modifications by the mobility dealer at the time of installation.

B&D also manufactures the HighTower® Docking Station, the world’s first vertical docking console. HighTower® has a sleek and streamline design that mounts between the front seat section. The brackets are made to meet the needs of the individual wheelchairs. The brackets can be installed without removing the wheelchair batteries! This revolutionary side-mounted docking console eliminates ground clearance concerns and improves stability.
