    Woody, have you tried using a good transfer board? I use this type of board http://www.ultraslick.com/ because when your transferring, your up against much less friction than you would have with a normal wooden board. You can also order a board with a third hand hold to aid your transfer technique.

    I never could get enough height to do it, even with locking my elbows. I have used a lift practically from day one. My shoulders are now in bad enough shape that I would have had to quit eventually.
