The Ergotrans design started in 1996 when my dad was assisting the neighbors’ caregiver with several transfers on a daily basis The neighbor had diabetes, a leg amputation, and the other foot was gangrenous. My dad asked me to design a product to get the neighbor into the car for medical appointments.
It's gone through a few changes/improvements over the years.
The last eight years of my mothers life, I used the Ergotrans to get her into my car for her medical appointments. Also to move her from the wheelchair onto the reclining dental and medical chairs.

He never let his MS stop him. He and wife Linda used the Ergotrans on a holiday to India and the Island of the Maldives.
"We traveled on commercial flights and two different boats. We were able to rent a nice car instead of a wheelchair van - saving money for other things!"

Allow the Ergotrans to keep you involved in living life.
I used to sustain an injury
every time I was transferred
onto a plane- sprained elbow,
broken collar bone, cracked rib...
The Ergotrans has made traveling
painless for me and I've got
six trips planned for the summer!
This product has changed my life
when it comes to traveling!.

The Ergotrans allowed our family
to enjoy an awesome time
at The Great Wolf Lodge
in Traverse City, Michigan
with my Mom just two months
before she passed away. We could not
have gotten her into the hot tub without
it. She never wanted to give up on life
and it was an amazing tool that gave us
the gift of being able to do things we
might not have been able to enjoy
without it's help.
