Phillips Plastic Transfer Board, #PTB-5011
$55.00 – $59.50
The Phillips Transfer Board bridges the gap between two patient transfer points. The Transfer Board is made of flexible plastic. It is comfortable to sit on and is easily removed after use. Available in 23″ and 30″ lengths. Weight capacity 300 lbs.
The Phillips Transfer Board is used primarily for seated patient transfers:
- Patient transfers between bed and wheelchair
- Patient transfers between wheelchair and car
- Patient transfers between wheelchair and toilet
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.
