The BraunAbility B&D Transfer Seat utilizes the original vehicle driver or front passenger seat to give you 180-degree turning power, making transfers in your lowered-floor wheelchair accessible vehicle or full-size van easier. Using a pendant or control box, the Transfer Seat Base turns toward the center of your lowered-floor accessible vehicle to allow for comfortable and safe transfers into the driver or front passenger seat.
The Transfer Seat Base is compatible and safety-tested on most wheelchair accessible vehicles on the market and as such, often requires no additional drilling into the vehicle floor, leaving the second-row area open for wheelchair storage and other passenger mobility. The chair can also be driven from any seat position for optimal comfort.
The built-in Passive Interlock ensures the Comfort Transfer Seat Base is returned to the standard driving position every time after operation to preserve the functionality of the air bag and seat belt functions. Once the vehicle is in operation, the Passive Interlock prevents the Transfer Seat Base from accidently activating. This interlock system also comes with a manual override feature should you ever want to manually re-adjust your position.
After your Comfort Transfer Seat Base installation, your BraunAbility mobility consultant will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess and make any needed adjustments to the product for your comfort. From there, it is recommended that you maintain regular maintenance on your seat base every six months – the same recommended maintenance plan for BraunAbility wheelchair accessible vehicles and lifts.
