Modified Naza Ria

Requirement: To enable a wheel chair bound senior citizen to ride comfortably without getting off the wheel chair.

Problem: To convert the Naza Ria without major modifications to the body and with a limited budget.

Solution: To install a remote controlled hydraulic ramp in the back.

Limitations: Still need muscle power to push invalid into the back of the vehicle. Also some safety concerns.

I feel that instead of a ramp, there should have been a hydraulic controlled lift. Anyway, at the budget (around RM15,000) they did a great job.

What do you think? Do you feel that they could have done it any other way?

Some pictures (hydraulics still not installed yet):
