Car Seat Lift and Transfer Boards

Car Seat Lift and Transfer Boards

A transfer seat looks just like a regular car seat, except that it comes right out of the car automatically, so you don’t have to do any climbing. All you have to do is sit, and the seat gently lifts and rotates you into position.

A transfer board is a more budget-friendly version of this concept – it is a motorized transfer board with up and down functions that helps lift you to seat level, which allows you to transfer into your vehicle.

Ask Conval-Aid/Liftability, which one works best for your unique needs.

Car Seat Lift vs. Transfer Board

A car transfer seat looks just like a regular car seat, except that it comes right out of the car automatically so your wheelchair transfer can be done in a safe and controlled manner. All wheelchair users have to do is sit, and the transfer seat gently lifts and rotates them into position.

A transfer board is a more budget-friendly accessible vehicle solution—it is a motorized transfer board with up and down functions that helps lift you to the level of your vehicle seat, allowing you to transfer more easily into the original vehicle seat.

A consultation with Conval-Aid/Liftability will help you determine the best seat lift solution to maintain independent drivers and passengers who want easier entry and a comfortable ride.

Benefits of Car Seat Lifts

Transferring from a wheelchair into the original car seat puts you at risk of falling or other injury. With a transfer seat solution, you have the ability to get the vehicle seat to the desired height, and can be confident knowing that you’re able to get seated easily.

The risk of bodily injury to caregivers or helpers who aid in lifting wheelchair users or those with reduced mobility in and out of a vehicle increases over time. Whether you’re dealing with tall pickup trucks or SUV/crossover vehicles, the risk of injury is the same.

A transfer seat, such as the Braunability Turny Evo, for the front driver or passenger seat of your vehicle will allow you to perform lifts safely and ergonomically.

If you’re looking for a seating solution that helps you regain independence and allows you to use your own car, whether as a passenger or driver, then an ergonomic seat lift is a great solution.

Caregivers are able to perform ergonomic lifts, and independent wheelchair users or users with reduced mobility are able to safely get themselves into the front seat of their own vehicle.

A rotating seat lift, such as the Turny Evo swivel seat, is compatible with many types of car models and car manufacturers.

There are minimal structural modifications that need to be made, and once installed, your transfer seat allows you to adjust the seat to the desired level and do the transfer completely outside the vehicle.

A rotating seat lift like the Turny Evo allows for much safer and easier entry and exit for those who struggle to get in and out of a vehicle. This seating solution puts the user in control, and allows them to build confidence and independence without fear of injury or falling.
