When you need to transfer from your wheelchair into your vehicle, getting the right solution to help you do that safely, efficiently, and comfortably is extremely important. For some people, both wheelchair users and carers, the process of transferring can be difficult or uncomfortable.
The GTRAN from Guidosimplex is an orthopaedic wheelchair that simplifies the process, by allowing the entire seat to be transferred into the vehicle, avoiding you needing to move from one seat to another. The system has been uniquely designed to simplify one of the bigger difficulties in getting out and about, while maintaining the safety, comfort, and quality you expect from your wheelchair.
It is made of two main elements – a seat and the frame/undercarriage. The seat is ergonomically designed to make it comfortable whether you’re in the vehicle or using it as a wheelchair. The swivel base on the seat allows it to turn 90 degrees, to get into the ideal position to enter and exit your vehicle. Attaching the wheeled base is simple, and the seat slides simply onto it to become a normal wheelchair, with the comfort of a cushioned car seat.
The GRTRAN system is designed to be safe and comfortable, whether you’re using it in the car or as a wheelchair. It has been specifically designed to make sure it does not interfere with your vehicle’s seatbelt – combine that with the adjustable headrest and reclinable back rest, and you have a chair custom-designed to work wherever you need it.
- Handlebar as part of the seat, to enable a carer or companion to push the wheelchair

- Adjustable and foldable armrests for comfort whether in or out of the vehicle
- Ergonomic seat
