BraunAbility Transfer Seat
The BraunAbility Transfer Seat allows the vehicle seat to rotate to face the center of an accessible vehicle, allowing for easy transfers from the wheelchair into the driver or front passenger seats.
Installing a transfer seat in the driver or front passenger area of a vehicle is a safe and comfortable solution for many customers. Transfer seats retain all factory seat features like lumbar support, adjustment features like tilting, and leather, if applicable.
To make the transfer of an individual from a wheelchair to a car easily, consider a BraunAbility Turny Evo seat. The seat swivels out and down to the level of the wheelchair, making the transfer less strenuous.
One effective way to transfer a wheelchair to a car is to use the BraunAbility Chair Topper wheelchair carrier. Once you’ve transferred into your car, the Chair Topper lifts and stores your wheelchair in the weatherproof rooftop compartment.
There are many ways to transfer a wheelchair depending on the type of wheelchair and your vehicle. Some wheelchairs can fold or collapse to easily fit into the cabin of your vehicle. More rigid wheelchairs require special equipment like a BraunAbility Chair Topper. A power wheelchair may require an accessible vehicle manufactured by a mobility provider like BraunAbility.
To better understand if Medicare or state or local government funding sources will cover the cost of a transport chair, consider contacting your local BraunAbility mobility dealer.
Transferring an elderly person from a wheelchair to a car requires careful planning and consideration to ensure their safety and comfort throughout the process.ﾠ It is important to note that the transfer technique and equipment used may vary depending on the individual’s abilities, their weight-bearing capacity, and any physical limitations they may have. It is recommended to consult with healthcare professionals, occupational therapists, or mobility specialists who can provide personalized guidance and recommend specific techniques and equipment for safe and effective transfers based on the elderly person’s specific needs and abilities.ﾠ Utilizing adaptive equipment like a swivel seat can assist in the safety of the transfer in and out of a car, minivan, SUV or Truck.
BraunAbility recognizes that for some consumers, it would be very convenient to have the ability to interchange seats during travel, making it possible for the wheelchair user to switch from driver to passenger on long trips. That may sound like a convenient feature for some, but interchangeable seating is simply not safe.
The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) are the legal guardrails that ensure the safety of vehicle occupants, and automakers have evolved their engineering and design to meet those evolving standards. Airbags integrated within the vehicle’s seats are one of the more recent advancements all automakers have incorporated. These airbags are specifically designed to protect the seat occupants based on whether the seat is in the driver or passenger position. If those seats are interchanged, the course of the air bag deployment is altered or disabled altogether. Removing the protection of the air bag where it was intended to deploy leaves the seat occupant more vulnerable to injury.
For that reason, BraunAbility has put the safety of our customers first and has opted not to offer interchangeable seating.
