Our client is 6 years old and has Cerebral Palsy. She cannot get into her family’s SUV independently. She is growing too big to be lifted into the vehicle.

We considered options like a footplate fixed to the vehicle but multiple steps were required.

Instead we modified a folding multi-step.  The legs were made extendable, so the steps could be used against a curb (as shown) or extended in situations like a car park. The top step goes across the car door sill and is retained against the inside.

The steps in place

The steps fold flat for storage in the vehicle with the wheelchair.
