from CM
5.0 out of 5 stars 1 customer review

Product Description

SafetySure Transfer is used primarily for seated transfers: Between bed and wheelchair, Between wheelchair and car, Between wheelchair and toilet. Advantages: SST Board bridges the gap between two transfer points. SST Board's anti-slip tapes enable it to remain immobile during the transfer. The SST Board is flexible. The upper side is slick to allow the patient to slide easily. SST Board is made of flexible plastic. It is comfortable to sit on and does not tip upward when the patient slides over a protruding wheel-chair wheel. The gap between the two transfer points cannot be greater than 1/3 of the total length of the board. Provided that surfaces are stable, no patient weight restrictions apply to SST Board use. Positioning: SST Board is placed under one hip and the patient is then tilted toward the board, taking the weight off the other hip. With the entire weight now resting on the SST Board, the patient can easily be transferred. To remove the SST Board, bend it upward toward the patient, so that the anti-slip tapes are removed from contact with the underlying surface and the board will pop out by itself. Transfer from bed to wheelchair During transfer from a bed to a wheelchair, it is often advantageous to position the wheelchair at a slight angle to the bed, so that the wheel is not in the way of the transfer. It is better if the bed is a little higher than the wheelchair - to allow for a downward transfer. The most common procedure is for the patient to sit on the edge of the bed and then slide across to the wheelchair on the SST Board .

I got this board because of minor wounds on my buttocks and thighs. The wood board with handles I was using was aggravating these wounds, so I wanted something more flexible. This board is perfect for me because it is flexible and makes for a smooth transfer. I transfer with ease between my wheelchair and the bed, car, and commode. I cannot walk or stand, however, I have strong upper body strength and a husband who is always close by when I'm transferring. Even though I can use this board easily by myself, it would not be good to use for individuals who are weak or unstable by themselves because it is so slick. But as long as a person is not weak or unstable OR has a caregiver to help, it's a great transfer board which works well with wheelchairs.
