User moves into a bus, filmed by Madeleine Stenius, Rehab Station Stockholm
Even with buses with low step-in height, there is a small difference in level between the curb and the bus. The user drives up to the bus and lifts up the front wheels so they end up in the bus. He bends forward while pressing the push rims forward with a closed grip. The same technique is used to go up a curb, see attached tip.
Description of technique according to the book ‘Drivkraft’ [Driving force] by Ake Norsten, see below.
For a description of more driving techniques, see the book ‘Drivkraft körergononmi, rullstolsteknik & metodik’ [Driving force driving ergonomics, wheelchair techniques and methods] by Åke Norsten. The book is available in Swedish and may be ordered from Spinalis, spinalis.se/?lang=en or Aleris Rehabstation Stockholm, aleris.se/rehabstation (last checked December 2020).
