Sightpath Medical is a provider of mobile ophthalmic technology and services. Sightpath's fleet of 180+ vehicles cover 49 states and log over 3 million miles each year, bringing advanced eyecare to underserved rural and urban communities. Transporting and operating advanced medical technology presented Sightpath's independent operators with a number of weight, space, maintenance, usability, and safety challenges.
After an extensive review of available options, the Nissan NV high-roof van was chosen for its drivability, weight, load security, reliability, and ability to accommodate an approved lift system.
Operators have noted how much easier and more comfortable the Nissan is to drive. By keeping the GVW under 10,000 pounds, we eliminated weigh station stops and reduced operator licensing requirements.
By reducing the types of vehicles in the Sightpath fleet, we improved safety and made loading and unloading easy and efficient.
