5 Transfer Products To Ease The Life of Caregivers

July 06, 2021 2 min read

Patient transfers cause a significant amount of stress, as they require both strength and technique. When carried out poorly, they might even be dangerous for both caregivers and patients. It is important to adopt the use of the proper transfer products to ensure the safety and comfort of both the elderly person and their caregivers. Here are some useful transfer aids that might help.


1. Easy Transfer Chair

With the Easy Transfer Chair, caregivers no longer have to lift patients up on their own. Instead, the product has a seat that splits into half, which can be slid under the user slowly and minimises large movement on their part. It also allows caregivers to avoid back strain from carrying out transfers daily, reducing the risk of injury.


2. Transfer Belt with Thigh Strap 

For caregivers who require more grip, the Transfer Belt with Thigh Strap includes handles for pulling patients up, increasing security and stability.

3. Transfer Board and Sheet 

Patients who are unable to stand might benefit from the Petermann Alpha Sliding Transfer Board and Slide Transfer Sheet, which allow them to move from one place to another while seated. The board contains anti-slip strips that prevent slipping at the bottom, and has a smooth surface to minimise resistance due to friction at the top. It is also flexible and bendable, making it suitable for areas of different sizes. 


4. Detachable Pushchair

TheHappyWheels Lightweight Detachable Pushchair is affordable, lightweight and perfect for patient transfers. This is because the armrests can be detached easily and pushed to the back, freeing up space. They are also height-adjustable, providing comfort and convenience for dining at a table. 


5. Industrial Back Support

For extra support and to protect their spine from potential injury, caregivers can use the Industrial Back Support when lifting patients.
