    Heres a idea for getting on and off Handcycles

    http://bike-on.com/product/bike-on-h...-seat-1874.htm

    Looks like it could also be used of course for bathtubs and swimming pools. I'm thinking about getting one of these. It would be great for using the swimming pool where I live since they will not put in a pool lift.

    I see it goes to 19.5" high, wonder if it could be modified (maybe platform under base) for high hotel beds. In any case a great contraption they should sell a bunch.

    I like that! I have a high seat handcycle, b.c I can/t manage the transfer otherwise.

    Looks like a good use, Scott at bike-on is always thinking about these things to get more people out there riding.

    I really like the use for getting me down to the ground for going into the pool. I get very nervous jumping down to the chaise lounge and then to the ground, one of these day's I'm going to take a bad fall.

    That thing would pay for itself if it prevented just one fall. It should be included with some of the new handcycles that sit about two inches off the ground! It's a heck of a transfer.

    Looks interesting. I imagine it's a plug in and not battery operated.

    Nope, battery operated, uses a small 3.5 ah battery that you recharge after every use. Only weighs around 20 lbs, looks interesting and useful. I have a tub that I do not use very much, with this I'd used it more. It can be fully immersed in water.

    A company named Ameriglide makes one too for less $$$. You do not get the plywood platform and hardware though like you do from Bike-on.com.

    Anybody have one of these lifts?

    A quadriplegic friend of mine uses the swing out Braun lift on his wheelchair to get on/off his low slung Top End handcycle.
