If you are struggling to bridge the gap to your vehicles seat when transferring then a a transfer or ‘tip-up’ plate will help .
A mounting point is fitted next to the relevant seat. From this a plate is attached which folds down to bridge the gap between your wheelchair and vehicle seat. Depending on the vehicle this plate is then folded up or backwards or fully removed once you’re seated in the vehicle.
These are available as either a manual fixed height version or an electric version which raises and lowers to the correct height to transfer at the touch of a button, this is especially useful to help transfer into higher vehicles.
Transfer plates can be fitted to most vehicles.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for advice on transfer plates or any disabled adaptations and our service covering the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire area. Also please contact us for any information regarding adaptations for vehicles on the Motability Scheme.
