Specially designed sliding board

Specially designed sliding board is easier to pull out from underneath the user after transfers.

Description
The sliding board is somewhat tapered on one side. A leather strap is stretched around the wheelchair frame to prevent the screws that hold the seat fabric in place on the front of the seat from damaging the sliding board.

Authors comments
