Patient Transfer Aids

Definition : Aids designed to simplify the process of transferring a person with a physical disability (e.g., nonambulatory, medicated, neuromuscular-impaired, arthritic, or comatose patients) that require partial or total assistance when moving to or from a bed, stretcher, operating table, wheelchair, or other place. A variety of devices are available in very different shapes and using very different transfer methods, such as lifts, sliding boards, slings, and rotating disks. Patient transfer aids are mostly recommended to transfer patients only for one or two meters (a few feet); they reduce the risk of dropping or otherwise injuring the patient and those assisting with the transfer. Some aids are also used to reposition people at home or in rehabilitation departments.
