User gets out of a bus, filmed by Madeleine Stenius, Rehab Station Stockholm
The user drives until the castors are right at the edge, he grabs the push rims at the back, and drives out over the edge in a low balanced position and lands on all four wheels. Then he opens his grip and lets the push rims slide in his hands. He keeps his upper body fairly straight. The same techniques is used to go down 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 (in Swedisch).
