Transfer Boards, Uplift Seats, Transfer Aids, Gait Belts & More
The types of transfer devices needed for seniors and the elderly can vary based on the individual mobility limitations of the user. Some seniors are able to stand with mild to moderate assistance and would benefit from the uplift seats and the many stand assist devices. Others may not be able to stand unattended at all and require the use of transfer boards, slide transfer devices, pivot discs, and caregiver assistance with gait belts and transfer belts to attain the safest transfers to and from the bed and wheelchair. We also carry assistance items to help make transfers to and from cars and automobiles easier.
Transfer boards help users slide or scoot from their wheelchair to a bed or seating surfaces without having to stand. There are straight boards, curved transfer boards, and sliding disc transfer boards.
