In this video Driving Mobility friend, Emily Roberts, demonstrates how she transfers in and out of her wheelchair and into/out of her car.
Emily says: “So, I had a new car which I could drive but couldn’t transfer or lift myself into. It really set me back, I cried, screamed and got really angry, (sorry mum and dad). After LOADS of encouragement and trying every way except using the kitchen sink, i’ve got there. Differently abled people find themselves adapting and overcoming new challenges every single day, please, don’t give up, you’ll find a way to do anything you put your mind to, your way. ”
