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 fold flat for storage in the vehicle with the wheelchair.
