The freedom to widen the radius of action and go wherever you want will be a pleasure and encourage their participation in society.

[0003] By the way, in the case of a disabled person or an elderly person who needs a wheelchair because it is difficult to move his / her body freely, it is difficult to get on and off between the wheelchair and the passenger car by himself, so a caregiver is required. And However, to move a wheelchair user from a wheelchair to a passenger car seat or vice versa, the caregiver must hold and move the wheelchair user. Therefore, depending on the weight of the wheelchair user or the degree of disability, holding and moving the wheelchair user physically places a heavy burden on the caregiver. Also, even from a wheelchair user's perspective, they may feel pain, anxiety or discomfort when being held.

[0004] Furthermore, since caregivers are often relatives of wheelchair users and may be women or elderly people with weak physical strength, it is extremely difficult for caregivers to move wheelchair users from wheelchairs to other places. It is hard work. Therefore, a passenger car modified to facilitate the movement of a wheelchair user is known. For example, there has been known a device in which a seat of a passenger car is rotatable, the seat is rotated to a position where a wheelchair user can easily get on and off, and the seat is fixed at a proper position when moving in the passenger car. According to this device, it is relatively easy for a wheelchair user to get on and off the seat of the passenger car.

There is also known a passenger car in which a seat is removed from the rear of the passenger car and a wheelchair can be fixed thereto. According to such a passenger car, the wheelchair user can get on and off the passenger car together with the wheelchair using the lift device or the like, so that the nursing care of holding and transferring is unnecessary, and the burden on the caregiver is greatly reduced.

However, even with an apparatus in which the seat of a passenger car is rotatable, care for the caregiver holding and transporting the wheelchair user still remains.
It is difficult to significantly reduce the burden on caregivers. Further, a passenger car in which a seat is removed from the rear and a wheelchair can be fixed thereto has a disadvantage that a large modification of the passenger car is required and it becomes expensive. In addition, if the driver is also a caregiver of a wheelchair user, it is not always preferable that the wheelchair user be in the rear of the passenger car, and the wheelchair user should sit in the passenger seat where the driver can always see. Is desirable. However, the wheelchair is narrow in the passenger seat, and even if the space problem is solved, the cost of remodeling the car becomes higher.

Next, the arm member is protruded from the pedestal, and the engaging portion provided at the advancing end of the arm member is engaged with the seat. As a result, the seat on which the wheelchair user is seated is held as it is by the arm member, so that the state is maintained even if the wheelchair body is removed. Therefore, with the wheelchair user sitting on the seat, the seat is removed from the wheelchair body together with the wheelchair user. Since the wheelchair user is in a seated state, the seat is held in a horizontal position and is moved up and down or in front and rear and left and right directions relative to the wheelchair body so as to be detached from the wheelchair body. Since the weight of the wheelchair user and the weight of the seat are supported by the arm member,
The weight handled by the caregiver is only the weight of the wheelchair body, and the work of removing the wheelchair body is easy for the caregiver.
