Adaptations to help you get in and out

Transfer plates 

You can have a transfer plate fitted to the side of your vehicle seat to help you get in and out.

This is a smooth surface that you sit on between getting out of your wheelchair and into your vehicle. You then fold the transfer plate away until you're ready to get back out of your vehicle.

Electric hoist 

An electric hoist physically lifts you in and out of the vehicle. It includes a permanent mount and three parts that fit together easily.

You may prefer this to a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle) as it lets you sit in the vehicle seat next to the driver.

Talk to an adaptations installer to find out if your vehicle is suitable for an electric hoist, and to find out about the different options, the cost, and what might be right for you.
