---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a short distance transfer system for use by individuals with lower extremity and mobility disabilities, people with spinal cord injury and others who use wheelchairs, aided by a caregiver. The IX Transfer System is a transfer aid and transport wheelchair intended for short distance transfers that can be physically demanding on caregivers. It is designed to be used in communal spaces such as a hospital, skilled nursing centers or similar locations, and it functions in either powered or manual modes. The IX Transfer System is wheeled toward the person who will be transferred, who is seated. The user straddles the system's seat and leans forward against the vertical body rest, and then the caregiver moves the system with the seated user mounted on the seat.
