The transfer from and into the wheelchair
– AN ENORMOUS FEAT –
In the everyday life of a wheelchair user, there are countless situations where a change in position is required. For wheelchair users, their family and/or carers, these transfers from and into the wheelchair are a time-consuming and exhaustive task. Depending on individual mobility many wheelchair users rely on help. Even for those who can manage transfers themselves, this may become more difficult with increasing age due to loss of strength or age related mobility restrictions. The easier solution for all involved would be a lateral transfer. However, traditional wheelchairs which protrude over the seat pose a major obstacle.
