Custom-sewn transfer mat

Discreet practical transfer mat that stays attached while transferring – suitable for wheelchair users

Description
The transfer mat is sewn from a synthetic rubber neoprene (used for wetsuits). It is designed to fit exactly on the wheel and brake lever. Velcro holds the mat in place. To attach it, first place it on the inside of the wheel (see photo 2). A large piece of soft Velcro is on the inside of the wheel, then the small cone fits over the brake lever and the entire mat is attached with Velcro, which easily meets the soft part of the Velcro closure.

Authors comments
Transfer mat sits in place during transfers; it is small and easy to bring along. It prevents chafing and is particularly useful during transfers when the user is wearing only underwear. Transfer mats available in stores are larger. They are difficult to put in place and they don’t always stay where they belong during a transfer.
