Adaptive Sport Fund Grants

Kelly Brush Foundation Accepting Spring 2019 Active Fund Applications

The Kelly Brush Foundation is accepting applications for Spring 2019 Active Fund grants until March 17. The Active Fund helps people with spinal cord injuries purchase the adaptive sports equipment they need to enjoy the physical, mental, and social benefits of an active lifestyle.

Over 740 people in 47 states have received Active Fund grants from the Kelly Brush Foundation. The most commonly requested adaptive equipment grants are for handcycles, monoskis, off-road handcycles, racing chairs, rugby chairs, basketball chairs, hockey sleds, tennis chairs, and WCMX chairs.

“We started the Active Fund because adaptive sports equipment is often highly specialized and prohibitively expensive”, said founder Kelly Brush. “The Kelly Brush Foundation is committed to helping people with spinal cord injuries build community and find independence through sports.”

Anyone living in the United States with a spinal cord injury is eligible to apply for an Active Fund grant. The full guidelines and online application can be found at: https://kellybrushfoundation.org/theactivefund/

VMI to acquire Revability

Deal Expands VMI’s Retail and Commercial Product Lines

Vantage Mobility International (VMI), a leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Revability, a division of specialty vehicle manufacturer REV Group, Inc. (NYSE: REVG). Revability designs and manufactures wheelchair accessible vehicles for commercial and personal use, giving VMI a more diversified product line to offer to the mobility industry.

VMI will continue to operate Revability’s manufacturing plant located in Clarkston, Michigan under the Revability name and will transition the remaining mobility manufacturing to VMI’s plant in Phoenix, AZ. This move aligns with the company’s commitment to support the growth of its retail dealers. By expanding its product portfolio, VMI will enable dealers to offer more choices to consumers with accessible transportation needs. This move also supports VMI’s growth in the commercial market space.

“We are proud to add the talented associates and Revability brand and products to our portfolio of customer offerings,” said Mark Shaughnessy, CEO of VMI. “This is an important move as our organization continues to take steps to satisfy the needs of our retail and commercial customers.”

The acquisition of Revability is the latest action in VMI’s plan to expand its product line to serve a wider range of customers seeking vehicles for personal and commercial use. In October 2017, VMI purchased AMS Vans, Inc., an Atlanta company providing economy priced wheelchair accessible van conversions for consumers.

“We are excited for the opportunity to bring VMI, Revability and AMS Vans under one inclusive tent so we can provide more options through sales channels in which customers want to buy,” said Charlie Treadwell, Vice President of Marketing. “We chose to join forces with Revability and AMS Vans because they reflect VMI’s commitment to empower people with disabilities by giving them more options to improve their independent lifestyles.”

“Revability is a great fit with VMI. With our complementary products and distribution channels, we will combine to provide customers with more product choices, better service and responsive teams from coast to coast,” said Chuck Fortinberry, Revability Vice-President & General Manager.

VMI’s expanded product line now offers more retail and commercial vehicle options in side and rear-entry conversions on Chrysler Pacifica, Toyota Sienna, Dodge Grand Caravan and Honda Pilot chassis, as well as platform lifts and ramps on Ram Promaster and Ford Transit full-size vans. With the addition of Revability, customers now have even greater choices in ADA compliant vehicles, flexible seating for multiple wheelchairs, power or manual ramps, and in-floor or fold-out ramp systems.

About VMI
Vantage Mobility International (VMI) is a leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles built on Toyota, Honda, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) chassis.  The company has advanced the mobility industry for 30 years with a robust portfolio of minivan and SUV conversions as well as platform lifts.

Braun's "Change a Life" Program

Ilderton Conversion of Charlotte was excited to be one of the first to partner with Braun in a new program bringing together the amazing team at the Braun production site and the consumer they are building it for.

The employees at Braun receive a full bio along with personal photos that stays with the van as it is being completed. This ensures that every member of BraunAbilty's production crew knows exactly who and why they are building this van and that it is truly "changing a life".

Eric Pierce was more than excited to participate in this new and heartfelt pilot program and his van, once completed, came complete with a thank you note from each person that helped make his 2018 Toyota Sienna a reality and therefore changing his life.

Auto Veteran Praises BraunAbility Quality


It’s not often that a vehicle earns George Brown’s complete approval, but the 36-year veteran of the automotive industry says of his BraunAbility van, “I know quality workmanship when I see it, and Chrysler should be very proud of how BraunAbility has converted their product.”

George, 81, and his wife, Judy, rely on their BraunAbility vehicle to take them everywhere – from trips around town to vacations down South to grandkids’ baseball games. “The workmanship is second to none, and the engineering is excellent,” says George, now on his third BraunAbility van. “And I wouldn’t settle for less.”
