Easy access to your high seated vehicle.
Turny lowers the seat to a comfortable ground level.

Turny is a swivel motorised car seat lift, especially designed for cars with a little higher floor level- mini buses and Vans.Turny makes it remarkably easy to enter or exit a car and it is also beneficial as a standing up aid. Turnys variable raising and lowering function is ideal for wheelchair users who can easily place the seat to the correct height to be able to transfer themselves sideways to or from their wheelchair.

Turny in Operation

TurnyThe Turny swivels the car seat out through the door opening and lowers it to a suitable position for transfer to or from a wheelchair.

The Turny is available in three lifting heights; 300 mm, 395 mm and 480 mm, suitable for high seated vehicles such as MPVs, SUVs, mini-buses and vans.

Easy Remote Control

The Turny Orbit has electrically operated swivelling, lifting and lowering. Turny HD has electrically operated lifting and lowering, while inward and outward swivelling is done manually by lifting the release lever by the side of the car seat.

The installation

TurnyThe Turny can be installed in the front passenger seat or in the mid row and provides safe means of transport for the mobility-impaired, as the original three-point car belt is retained.

The product is installed in the original car seat mounts in the floor, which in the majority of cases causes no damage to the vehicle, and it can also be transferred when necessary to another vehicle.

The Turny is CE- and E-marked and approved for a lifting capacity of 150 kg. It has also been subjected to crash, tensile and load tests.

Turny in combination with the Carony system

Carony Fixed eliminates lifting by the attendant and simplifi es transfer to and from the vehicle. A couple of simple hand movements allow a single person to transfer the chair and passenger from the wheelchair base to the passenger seat. This is done without any lifting and so avoids arm and back strain. The compact wheelchair base is stored in the trunk when not in use. Carony Fixed is CE-marked.

Carony Fixed is a specially designed Carony model that is used in combination with the Turny car seat lift. Its continuously adjustable lifting and lowering function allows it to dock with the Carony Fixed base, which has a set standard height. The set of pictures below illustrates passenger transfer from a Carony Fixed to a Turny Orbit in a mini-bus.

2. Dock the wheelchair to Turny and slide the seat onto the rails.

3. Store the wheel unit in the vehicle.

4. Use the manual control for lifting and inward swivelling.

5. Swivel Turny inwards to the passenger seat in the vehicle.
