The challenge

Wheelchair security deviceThe client uses a wheelchair but could not go out by himself in his car as once he had transferred from wheelchair to car the wheelchair could not be secured in position for his return and if moved might not be within his reach thus trapping him in his car.

A wheelchair lock with a long slotted arm was made which allows him to secure the chair in the lock, transfer to the car and push the wheelchair to one side leaving it clear but accessible. The lock prevents the chair from being moved away from where the client can reach it on his return.

The client can now go out by himself without any concerns about getting back into the house on his return.
