Our Download Centre offers you all of the important information you need – from user, maintenance and service manuals to our integrated mobility solutions and information on power wheelchairs, our Space Drive drive-by-wire system and vehicle conversions.
The answer is simple: With great all-round service. At Paravan, we take time for our customers – from the initial consulting discussion to the creation of a mobility solution completely tailored to your needs.
Mobility is freedom. Freedom that can be taken from any one of us at any time. Or some people may have never felt before. With visionary technologies and tailor-made holistic solutions, we want to make this freedom possible even for people with multiple or severe disabilities. For a more self-reliant and independent life.
Each disability is unique, which is why it’s so important to listen to every customer and take their needs seriously, especially when you yourself sometimes can’t help but look at things from the perspective of someone without a disability. The approach we take here means that our power wheelchairs incorporate the ideas of not only our engineers, technicians and physical therapists, but also the ideas of our customers.
Paravan Space Drive is a cutting-edge technology that was developed to help people with severe physical limitations achieve their mobility goals. Driving a vehicle with a joystick and minimal physical effort – that’s Space Drive!
Whether it’s clever little aids or high-tech control devices: You always have everything under control at all times – even with your feet. Fittings include everything from a ball bearing mounted spinner knob to the Space Drive computer-controlled high-tech console, an orthopaedic tri-pin and drive cameras. Everything is ergonomically optimised and TÜV-tested.
Our seat collection is the result of extensive research and development. The entry and stand-up aids integrated into our vehicle seats not only support people with disabilities; they also offer active senior citizens and people with restricted mobility a new form of assistance.
Ramp, rear lift or a cassette lift? PARAVAN can offer you a wide range of comfortable options to help you access your adapted vehicle or load your wheelchair into the vehicle. All of these options have one thing in common: They are fast and extremely easy to use.
Perfectly connected: Our clever fastening and tie-down solutions ensure that you and your wheelchair are securely restrained in the vehicle.
Our customer Jenny has completed her own personal journey to the freedom and independence that mobility offers. She did this with a disability adaptation to her T5. The new equipment used includes the Space Drive 2 digital driving and steering system and a PARAVAN cassette lift. Jenny’s vehicle can now accommodate her PARAVAN PR 50 power wheelchair – and her life has become a little more normal, and a lot more pleasant, as a result.
The Space Drive system is considered a milestone in automobile development: it’s the first drive-by-wire technology approved for road use. Developed and produced in accordance with the highest safety standards, Space Drive enables multi-redundant control of the engine, brakes and steering system and forms the basis for manual driving without a steering column, as well as targeted driving and, in future, fully automated driving.
Why do people from all over Germany, even the whole world, flock to the little town of Aichelau? Because this is where unique vehicles are created – vehicles that give disabled people some of their freedom back.
Our mission is to offer mobility and a more fulfilling and enjoyable life to people with disabilities. We work with passion to continuously develop personalised solutions for every type of disability.
