Easy interior transferring

An interior transfer seat allows a person to shift from a wheelchair into the driver’s (or front passenger’s) seat. B&D Independence transfer seats have a 20-inch forward/backward range; a 6½-inch height adjustment, and a 100-degree swivel range. With the transfer seat in its far-back position and swiveled perpendicular to the driving position, the wheelchair user, after navigating into the central area behind the front seats, can slide easily into place. The power toggle switches are mounted by the seat as shown at left or an optional remote control is available. These seats can be found in the following minivan conversions: Chrysler Town & Country; Dodge Grand Caravan; Honda Odyssey; Toyota Sienna; and Volkswagen Routan. Base price: $2,500.
