Placing a wheelchair into a passenger car

Technique for people with strong arms

Description
The user places the wheelchair cushion on the passenger seat. Then he places the wheelchair on the foot bar and leans it against the car door with one hand; with the other hand he holds on to the steering wheel to keep his balance. He removes the pushrim closest to him and places it behind the passenger seat on the floor. He leans the wheelchair toward him and removes the other wheel and places it in the same place. To keep his balance he leans his shoulder against the frame of the car door. Then he lifts in the wheelchair frame and places it on the passenger seat so that the rear wheels face downwards.
