User transfers from bed to wheelchair

The user turns in bed by grasping something, such as the wheelchair, so that he looks toward the wheelchair. He positions one arm under his body and supports himself on it so that he comes up to a half-seated position. He places his legs down one after the other so that he winds up in a sitting position with both feet on the floor. He grasps the wheelchair frame with one hand, and places the other on the bed close to his hip. He transfers over to the wheelchair and straightens up.
