This is my Dad, at the age of 87, demonstrating the first WINGMAN prototype. When the production released WINGMAN was ready; nothing changed in the way he used it. WINGMAN was just bigger, stronger and more fully featured.

This is John. He has probably demonstrated more toilet transfers in more types of bathrooms on YouTube than anyone else on the planet. He has done a few videos since he started to use WINGMAN and occasionally surprises me by sending to me an email with another one.  This one shows a transfer that was also demonstrated on YouTube by Sarah Will. She called it a forward transfer. Call it whatever you want, it works in tight spaces and the user avoids landing on their lead hand when they perform it. .

This what John wrote on May 24th on Youtube:

Wheelchair style - Transfers to & From AXS-WINGMAN Toilet Seat -

Published on May 24, 2014
i've had the AXS-WINGMAN toilet seat since January 25th 2013, so i guess i've used the AXS-WINGMAN for almost a year & a half. Through all this time of Transferring on & off the AXS-WINGMEN to & from my Wheelchair, i've never felt more Secure on any other toilet seat more than the AXS-WINGMAN toilet seat. Recently i got Sepsis, a blood Infection, & so i've had to transfer to use the AXS-WINGMAN toilet seat probably 6 to 8 times per day because of the side effects of the Antibiotic i need to take Intravenously daily. The AXS-WINGMAN really makes all the toilet transfers i do much easier.
I'm paraplegic(20+ years in a wheelchair) with Website http://wheelchairstyl.com, wheelch..., http://wheelchairstyl.com, http://wheelchairstyle & https://twitter.com/#!/Wheelchairstyl . Many of the things i do are either done wrong or incorrectly. Doing things the incorrect way is probably what made me paraplegic in the first place. Even though they are probably not correct, i hope my video gives you an idea you might possibly be able to do safely & correctly yourself. Follow these videos at your own risk :)

Katie Hull Little Miss Wheelchair 2012, shows that sometimes just the forward palming and grip extension and the easily gripped forward sides of WINGMAN are enough. Of course the strength, stability and silky smooth top surface of WINGMAN are also supporting Katie flawless execution of her preferred transfer technique. Again, there was no rehearsal or coaching. Katie did this the first time without any instruction.

Joshua Miller of TeamJJ shows how easy it is for him to transfer on and off WINGMAN at the Los Angeles Ability Expo despite the challenge of using prosthesis on both legs. He grabs one of the WINGS and rotates onto the seat. Nobody taught JJ this transfer technique. He didn't make several practice runs before he was successful. He just walked up to the seat like he had been using it everyday for years and jumped right on it.
