Part 3 of our DIY Wheelchair Transfer Platform build! Click to check out pictures of it completely assembled and in use!
I won’t say this was an easy project, so it was pretty satisfying to be able to say it was done. Check out Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed the building process of this wheelchair transfer platform.
Without further ado, here are lots of pictures of the finished wheelchair transfer platform!!
Leg with bolt where the hinge pivots and pin with wire retainer to lock the legs in either the up or down position.
Wheelchair transfer platform in action!
The space between the ramps make it easy for the person pushing the wheelchair to keep walking on the ground without having to walk up the ramp. (In hindsight I might have made the ramps 10″ or 11″ wide instead of 12″ to make this walkway a little wider but it is fine as it is)
In this picture you can see that the wheelchair is at the same height as the seat in the pickup. This makes it easy to place a transfer board between the wheelchair and seat then grab the handle in the truck and slide right in!
I hope this build helps get some ideas brewing of ways to create solutions to make to make life a little easier for yourself or somebody you know.
