Safely Transporting Your Mobility Equipment
For those with limited strength, lifting a rollator or wheelchair in and out of a vehicle can be difficult. The first thing to consider is the weight of the piece of equipment. We suggest considering a lightweight version first and foremost.
Begin by making sure the door or boot is as wide as possible. Once your equipment is folded and secure, lift with your knees and carefully slide it into your vehicle.
Many wheelchairs have removable leg rests, wheels, as well as a collapsible back and seat. It’s important to remove these items when possible, as it reduces the weight needing to be lifted.
