B&D Independence

B&D Independence, founded in 1981, is the leading manufacturer of transfer seat bases worldwide. A transfer seat base mounts into a handicap accessible van and it makes it possible for a person to transfer from their wheelchair into either the driver or passenger seat.

In addition to transfer seat bases, the company manufactures the HighTower Docking Station for those clients that must drive from their power wheelchair and UWR, a restraint device for a manual wheelchair to secure it when the user is driving, or riding, from the transfer base. B&D sells their products thru a dealer network of over 300 dealers.

B&D Independence was purchased by BraunAbility on August 1, 2016. BraunAbility is the world’s leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles and wheelchair lifts for both personal use and commercial applications.

Founded nearly 50 years ago by Ralph Braun, BraunAbility has grown into the most well-known and trusted brand in the mobility industry, bringing independence to tens of thousands of individuals around the world.
