Electric Tip Up Plate
The Electric Tip Up Plate provided from the fitting experts at Des Gosling Mobility Derby is designed to help people make a sidewise transfer between a wheelchair and the vehicle’s seat. The plate is powered up and down directly from the vehicle’s battery and is folded up and down manually.

To get into the vehicle the plate is powered up to a height similar to that of the wheelchair that the user is transferring to. The user can then lift themselves easily onto the plate. The plate is then lowered down until it is a similar height to the vehicle’s seat, and the user can easily transfer into the seat. The plate is then simply folded up to a vertical position, where it can remain whilst driving.
Alternatively for higher seated vehicle’s the process can be reversed and the plate lowers down to a suitable height and then lifts the user up to the height of the seat. The electric tip up plate can be installed in vehicle’s with both 3 and 5 doors in either the driver’s or front passenger’s side door.
