The SafetySure® Bariatric Transfer Board is designed with the bariatric patient in mind and helps bridge the gap between two transfer points. The transfer board is made of 0.5" thick birch plywood and will support up to 650 lbs. The transfer board is 10" wide for better support during the transfer process. The transfer board is finished with a smooth lacquer coating. Available in 24" and 30" lengths. May be be used for independent or assisted transfer. The transfer boards can also be used with non-bariatric patients. Makes lateral transfers safer and helps reduce strain on the patient and caregiver. Made in USA.
Transfer Board helps the patient transfer between surfaces of similar or slightly different heights. If you have decreased upper body strength, work with a caregiver to help you transfer. Using the industry standard of “a third, a third, a third”, place one third of the board on the surface you are transferring from, place another third onto the surface you are transferring to, and the remaining third is the space in between the two transfer points.
Support your body weight on the flat surface as you move slowly and carefully paying attention to your movement and the location of your body as you transfer across the board. Don’t drag your buttocks on the board. Keep your body in the correct position keeping your feet flat on the floor throughout most types of transfers. When transferring, never put your hands or fingers under the board.
