Transfer: Wheelchair to Chair

People who can't walk are taught to use wheelchairs. For safety, have the therapist show you the correct way to help someone out of a wheelchair. Start by locking the wheels of the chair. Then stand as close to the person as you can. Make sure your footing is stable. The person should always wear a special belt for you to grip.

  2. Keep the person’s weaker knee between your legs. Pivot the person around in front of the toilet or chair. Lower him or her gently.
