Loading Emma's chair into car

I've had online discussions with a few people lately on how to load an adaptive stroller into a minivan without worrying about hurting your back. Emma uses the Kids F.A.S.T. stroller/wheelchair and, while we love it, it became obvious early on that moving it in and out of the van several times a day would not be good for my back since it must weigh at least 65 lbs. So, we bought a suitcase ramp that has been fantastic. Here is a short video of me loading the chair into our minivan. We have Toyota Sienna and I store the rear seats in the down position to make room for all Emma's gear.

Definitely need to get one of those! If I am by myself I have to take the chair apart to get it back in. That is a hassle! I am able to lift the chair out OK, but that cannot be good for my back! Thanks for sharing this video!
