Turny Evo Lets You Enter Your Vehicle With Ease

There are any number of devices designed to help a disabled or elderly person get around their homes, but really not so much in the way of devices for cars. I suppose that could be because many disabled or elderly people don’t much drive any more, but they do still go places. And many of them drive. A very good friend of mine has MS, and while at this point he can still manage to get in and out of a van, there will come a day when that is no longer possible. So the Turny Evo caught my eye right off.

Simply put, this is a replacement for a single car seat that will turn, raise and lower for easy entering and exiting. Of course, how it actually works is more complicated than that, and I don’t claim to be enough of a car guru to make sense of it all. But I do have a mechanic, and I bet he does. Turny Evo can replace either the front driver or passenger seat in most varieties of minivan, passenger van, SUV, crossover and minibus. It’s crash tested, and since every model of car is different, so is the Turny Evo. That way, each one can be customized to fit whatever path, shape and size your particular vehicle requires.

It is controlled with a handheld remote, which not only will turn the seat, move it outside the vehicle and lower it so you can get on, then reverse the whole process so you can sit comfortably where you belong, but can be used once the seat is back inside to move it forward and backward. If you happen to be one of the people who use Autoadapt’s Carony Classic wheelchair, you can use the same seat from your wheelchair with the Turny Evo; just attach it to the mounting system and you’re ready to go.

Currently, Turny Evo is on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but there has been no word on price or availability. They do, however, have a model for passenger seats only which has been available for a while. Apparently you have to contact a dealer for pricing.
