The BeasyTrans Transfer Board is the original 40 inch long "S-shaped" sliding transfer board. The longer length will accommodate patients and transfers in areas where space is not an issue. The BeasyTrans provides users with a safe, comfortable and dignified way to transfer from bed to wheelchair, from wheelchair to commode or shower seat, to a car and back again. With the BeasyTrans Transfer Board, most users can achieve regular access to an automobile. For some, this may mean a greater quality of life. The visiting of friends and relatives may be resumed. Educational and cultural undertakings can be attended. The systems may even allow the user to live at home while receiving outpatient care, rather than living in a long term facility and even for traveling! It's a well documented fact: lifting leads to injury. For example, patient movement tasks statistically place nursing personnel in the top percentile of the U.S. labor force for back injuries. At the same time, the person being lifted is at risk for arm and brachial plexus type injuries as well as back injuries from being torqued or twisted. The risk of such injuries is tremendously reduced when lifting is eliminated. The frictionless, lateral slide is clearly the state of the art in patient transfer. The design of the BeasyTrans Transfer Board makes it possible to apply sliding technology to a wide range of transfer and therapeutic functions in both the clinical and homecare environment. Because the seat easily rotates 360 degrees, the systems can be used for range of motion exercises for hands, feet or other body parts.
