United Access customers rent wheelchair vehicle conversions to check out Dallas Zoo, Dealey Plaza, American Airlines Center, and Dallas Museum of Art. Although most need handicap van conversions in Dallas, Texas for local tourist attractions when they are here, many merely need a short term solution for a ball game, dentist appointment, family reunion, or other function. Many of our renting clients have taken short trips to The Cedar Ridge Preserve. We have rented vans to men and women that were going to a class reunion at Warren Travis White High School. Our customers can count on two things: there is a lot to do and see in Dallas, and United Access can provide the wheelchair van rental to make it all a reality.

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not cover handicap vans or wheelchair-accessible vehicles, but some Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) plans may cover vehicle modifications, depending on the plan.

Kneeling systems have become a popular option on custom handicap vans. Linearactuators are used in these systems to lower the rear suspension of the van, reducingthe incline of the wheelchair ramp when deployed. This allows for easier wheelchairaccess. Since they are typically mounted under the vehicle chassis, a rugged actuatorsolution is required to withstand road salt and dirt build up that can cause failures.

Based on many years of extensive handicap van application experience, Warner Linearengineers have developed the new H-Track electric actuator with self-containedhydraulic actuation to meet the challenging requirements of van kneeling systems.The innovative H-Track provides the performance of hydraulics without the spacerequirements and expense of a full-size hydraulic system.

However, if you present the proper information regarding your handicapping condition, communicate with and ask questions, and compare policies, there is no reason why you cannot obtain suitable insurance for your wheelchair-accessible vehicle. Remember that your disability does not excuse you from following the law, and you are still fully responsible for driving safely and obeying all traffic rules.

Your driving record is the single most influential factor on your premium rates, just as it is with a non-handicapped person. Just look at the table below to see how much one speeding ticket, at-fault accident, or DUI can affect your car insurance rates.

Still, insurance providers try to help handicapped persons compensate for these disabilities when it comes to their insurance. No matter what situation a person finds themselves in, as long as it is not overtly dangerous for them to drive, they are entitled to mobility vehicle insurance.

While handicap modifications are not generally covered by government programs like Medicare, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) of 1990 prohibits car insurance companies from refusing car insurance to people with disabilities or from raising rates simply because of that disability.

Medicare will probably help cover your wheelchair or scooter costs, and you may qualify for a state grant to purchase a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. How can you get help to buy a handicap van? Mobility Works lists ways to determine how to qualify for those grants for wheelchair vans by your state. Is insurance for a wheelchair-accessible van available?

Opponents of the higher car insurance rates for disabled people argue that this is discrimination. However, this is difficult to prove and is still fully legal. Insurance companies argue that the extra modifications add to the overall value of the handicapped vehicle and increase the likelihood of theft or vandalism in some cases.

Under the framework of Fisher 's runaway process (Fisher 1999), the preponderance of exaggeration rather than reduction can best be explained by the fact that the signaling efficacy of an ornament increases with size (Tazzyman et al. 2014). The loss of signaling efficacy in smaller traits means that runaway is prevented in the direction of reduction, whereas it is still possible in the direction of exaggeration. However, the runaway process must in reality halt somewhere, and Fisher 's process is only one potential explanation for the evolution of secondary sexual ornamentation. Another well-studied possibility is the handicap process (Zahavi 1975). To fully explain the reasons why trait exaggeration is apparently so much more common than trait reduction, and hence to address this gap in the current theory of the evolution of sexual signaling, we need to understand the extent to which the handicap process also contributes to sexual trait size asymmetry.

Under the handicap process, high-quality individuals must have higher marginal fitness benefits from advertising (Grafen 1990; Iwasa et al. 1991; Getty 1998; Holman 2012), either because for them the cost of ornament expression increases more slowly (condition-dependent handicap), or because the benefit in terms of mating success increases more rapidly (revealing handicap) (van Doorn and Weissing 2006). We focus on condition-dependent handicaps, and consider the costs of such traits. It is not only the case that ornamental traits larger than the naturally selected optimum impose a cost on their bearer; traits smaller than the naturally selected optimum are also maladaptive, and could thus be handicap traits. A priori, the handicap principle should be just as likely to lead to reduced ornaments as to exaggerated ornaments, something born out in theoretical models (either implicitly, e.g., Pomiankowski 1987; Iwasa et al. 1991; Iwasa and Pomiankowski 1994; Kirkpatrick 1996; or explicitly, e.g., Iwasa and Pomiankowski 1995; Pomiankowski and Iwasa 1998; van Doorn and Weissing 2006). Some additional factors must therefore explain the disparity between exaggeration and reduction. Here we aim to investigate what these factors might be.

We consider four potential explanations: three following a previous study of Fisher 's process (Tazzyman et al. 2014), plus an additional one only applicable to handicap traits. First, it is likely that as trait size increases so does signaling efficacy, because, for example, larger traits will likely be visible to potential mates from further away (Endler 1993; Leichty and Grier 2006; Fawcett et al. 2007), and will be easier to compare. As mentioned above, incorporating an increased signaling efficacy with increased ornament size was previously found to be a viable explanation for the preponderance of exaggerated traits in cases where secondary sexual ornaments and mate choice preferences evolve by Fisher 's runaway alone (Tazzyman et al. 2014), so it seems reasonable to investigate whether this also applies to the handicap process. 041b061a72
