BraunAbility Wheelchair Accessible Vans
Ralph Braun was just a boy in 1947 when doctors told him muscular dystrophy would soon rob him of his independence. It was a fate he refused to accept. He went on to invent the first battery-powered scooter, and later, converted an old postal jeep – complete with a wheelchair ramp and full hand-controls – into a vehicle that would give him the freedom he longed for.
Ralph’s amazing life was just the start of the BraunAbility story. BraunAbility was founded by a man who refused to be defined by his limitations. Today, they continue Ralph’s mission of providing others the same freedom he fought for in his own life.
