The user sits in front of the wheelchair with knees bent at a 90-degree angle. His feet are placed on the floor in front of the wheelchair foot bar. He grabs the trouser leg with his teeth at the knee on the leg that is farthest from the wheelchair to hold his legs together. He supports himself with his elbow on the wheelchair cushion and places the other hand on the floor. The assistant grips him under the sitting bones, presses him forward so that he is in a crouched position and lifts him into the chair. He adjusts his position.
