Designed for drivers or passengers who find it difficult to access the driver or passenger front seats of their vehicle, this adaptation allows a smooth and safe transfer in to or out of the vehicle.
The transfer plate is a seat which is attached to the vehicle using a quick release mechanism, to assist you when getting into or out of the driver or passenger seat.
Our transfer plate can be fully adjusted at installation to suit your requirements with the height, reach and angle settings available. It has a 130Kg (max load) user rating and a removable seat on a quick release mechanism.
When the transfer plate seat is removed, there are no obstructions to the vehicle seat and it can accessed and adjusted as usual. The remaining components are discreetly designed and are unobtrusive when not in use.
The seat has a padded comfort seat cover to offer the user protection, whilst maintaining a smooth surface to enable easy transfer.
When entering the vehicle, the transfer plate is operated by taking the seat from your safe stowage space inside your vehicle then inserting it into the clasp at a 45 degree angle, and then lowering it down into the clasp. The user will then transfer onto the transfer plate seat whilst taking a firm grip on a hard point within the vehicle. Once seated, the user will raise their legs into the footwell of the vehicle before moving from the transfer plate seat to the vehicle seat. The transfer plate can then be removed from the clasp and stored safely within the vehicle.
When exiting the vehicle, the transfer plate is operated by removing the seat from your safe stowage area in the vehicle and inserting it into the clasp, in the same way as noted above. The user will then transfer from the vehicle seat on to the transfer plate seat, lower their legs onto the floor then transition from the transfer plate seat to their next position (stood up or into a wheelchair).
