Describes basic principles for assisting individuals with disabilities to transfer from a wheelchair to another location, factors to assess before the transfer, and the essential principle of protecting the individual's dignity. Demonstrates the use of these principles with three types of transfers: one-person seat carry, two-person chest-leg lift, and two-person pivot transfer. Includes an initial summary of objectives and review at the end of the program.
