English term or phrase: footplates & footrests
Part of a wheelchair. I am confused> I thought pedana would be good for f-rest and poggiapiedi for foot plates, thinking the former would be in one piece and the latter in two, but they are both in two pieces so I have no idea what the difference is (no illustration)

Italian translation:pedana e poggiapiedi
Explanation:
secondo me si tratta di sinonimi in inglese, quindi utilizzerei due sinonimi anche in italiano. Non lascerei assolutamente "footplate" o "footrest" in inglese (e perché mai, dato che esistono equivalenti italiani?).

footplate e poggiapiedi


Explanation:
Ho trovato un sito su google dove traduce footrest in pogguapiedi e lascia invariato footplate che a mio parere essendo entrambi composti di due pezzi, sono la stessa cosa, almeno hanno la stessa funzione, ma forme diverse.
Spero ti aiuti
Ciao
Paola
