Wheelchair Transfer Cushion

Saddle-shaped with strong plastic inserted in one of the flaps.

What is it?
The Wheelchair Transfer Cushion enables people to transfer in and out of a wheelchair more comfortably and easily.

Key features:

  • saddle-shaped vinyl cushion straddles the chair's wheel, allowing users to slide across the chair without getting stuck on the wheel or having their clothes rub against it.
  • the cushion's smooth, padded surface means the user's hips and buttocks won't catch on the wheel
  • strong, flexible plastic inserted inside one of the flaps ensures the device sits securely

Who is it for?
People who use a wheelchair and require increased comfort when moving in and out of their chair.
