A personal transfer plate can be fitted to many vehicles. There are a couple of options for this - electric and fixed manual.
With the manual option, the transfer plate is set at a fixed height. It is simply a matter of putting the plate into the corresponding mount on the vehicle, sliding onto it and then transferring onto the seat.
With the electric option,you can simply lower the transfer plate to a 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.
The swivel type seat can make entry and exit of the vehicle a much less strenuous activity. The manual swivel seat is released and can be pivoted forward and out (left or right) so that it slightly exits the vehicle, giving more room to sit into the seat. Once seated, the seat can then be returned to its normal position in the vehicle.
The Electric version works in the same manner but all with the push of a button (the electric turn out seats can also extend further from the vehicle and drop down lower, this is ideal for higher ground clearance vehicles.
A removable transfer hoist can be fitted to many vehicles. With the aid of a carer, this enables an easy lift with a sling & transfer from a wheelchair to the vehicle’s seat.
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.
