Powerchair Stand to Transfer

Postby fleetmac » 09 Apr 2020, 08:18

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows of a powerchair that facilitates the ability to stand to transfer? Currently I use a magic mobility CV 73 chair with anterior tilt (~7 degrees). This has worked well over the last two years but as I am losing muscle power, transferring is much more difficult. I have tried two standing chairs but this hasn't been very helpful as they were more designed to drive in the upright position, and not transfer out of them. I have read about the Centro Lift-Anterior-Reach powerchair and this may be an option? Has someone had experience with this chair? Any other choices? Thank you.

Theres no simple transfer solution. I use a board, to my bed, sofa. Remove arm, slide sideways across. Visit a OT for training etc. Paralised from chest down.

There is a 'chair' designed for exactly this called the TEK RMD. Don't know if it's still being made/marketed but look on YouTube. Basically you enter it forward from sitting position.

I use the term 'chair' loosely because as a daily use chair it's pretty rubbish.

The Centro looks like its marketed in Ozzie land only.

Any powerchair with seat lift/riser should work to get you standing. When I could still do standing transfers I would slide forward in the seat to the edge and then use the powered seat lift to get me as high as needed (usually just as my feat started to dangle), and then I'd slide off. I would lower the chair for getting back in.

There are a few chairs out there that offer anterior tilt options, teamed with seat lift they usually work best.
