In brief: See answer below

Wheelchair transfers refer to transfers that a person with a spinal cord injury who is using a wheelchair must perform when going from the wheelchair to a bed, to a couch, to a car, to a shower bench, and back into the wheelchair. Sliding boards are initially used to make the transfers easier.
