More Information

  • Positioning:
    - Place the SafetySure Transfer Board under one hip on the individual to be transferred. Tilt the individual towards the SafetySure Transfer Board, taking the weight of the other hip. With the individual entire weight now resting on the board, the individual can easily be transferred. To remove, bend the patient transfer board upward toward the individual and slide the board from underneath the patient.
  • Patient Transfer from bed to wheelchair:
    - During patient transfer from a bed to a wheelchair, it is often advantageous to position the wheelchair at a slight angle to the bed so that the rear wheel of the wheelchair is not in the way of the patient transfer. It is better if the bed is a little higher than the wheelchair to allow for a downward transfer. The most common procedure is for the patient to be transferred to sit on the edge of the bed and then slide across to the wheelchair on the patient transfer board.
    - Patient transfers from the wheelchair to the bed often involve and upward movement if the bed cannot be lowered. In this instance, the patient transfer can be made easier by the use of a patient transfer belt.
  • Transfers between wheelchair and toilet:
    - When transferring an individual between wheelchair and toilet, two things should be kept in mind. Bare and damp skin does not always slide on the patient transfer board. A towel or toilet paper under the individuals buttocks will solve this problem. As an alternative, you can remove the individuals lower garments after the patient transfer has been completed.
    - Since there is only a small area of contact between the patient transfer board and the toilet seat, it is recommended that the caregiver hold onto the board to make sure that it is kept firmly in position.
  • Transfer between wheelchair and car:
    - During a wheelchair to car transfer, the transfer board functions best if the caregiver works from inside the car pulling the individual carefully towards them . In the case of a totally passive individual, a SafetySure Transfer Sling and a SafetySure Transfer Belt may be used in addition to the SafetySure Transfer Board. These additional items allows for a safe and easy patient transfer.
