About

A device to help wheelchair users move between sitting places

People who have lost the ability to walk due to spinal cord injuries struggle with transferring from their wheelchairs and end up with more injuries. Sometimes they prefer not to move because no one is around to help them or simply they just don’t want to ask others. Paraladder has designed an aid for them to move from their wheelchairs with comparative ease.
