Personal Transfer Plate

These can enable people who are chair bound, to transfer with relative ease, from a chair into the driver or passenger seat at the push of a button with minimum exertion. You can simply lower the transfer plate to downward position, slide onto it and then, with the push of a button, raise the plate to seat level. These are well suited to higher ground clearance vehicles, for example, 4wd type.

There are also available personal lifts specially designed to help in the loading and unloading of persons who would normally require a lot of extra assistance and physical exertion to be transferred from a wheel chair to a comfortably seated position in the vehicle.
A comfortable, specially designed sling is put around the person to be transferred. The lifting arm is then connected to the sling, The person can then be lifted by using the corded remote, transferred and reseated into the vehicle, all with ease and comfort.
