The transfer aid does the work of raising and lowering the patient, protecting both the patient and the attendant.
Portable Transfer Aid
The PTA is a compact, portable, easy to use patient transport device for transferring individuals between sitting positions on a bed, wheelchair, car, chair, etc.. It requires very little effort on the part of the attendant, thereby preventing the back injuries common when performing these transfers unassisted.
Unlike other sling-transfer devices on the market, the patient is not left dangling from a hook. The short, stable sling feels natural and very secure during transport. There is no need for another attendant to steady the patient during transport.
The PTA's base may be spread to fit around the outside of a standard wheelchair for maximum stability...
or the legs may be placed forewards for manuevering in tight spaces or through standard doorways.
The lift folds up neatly into a compact size for storage or travel. Once folded, the lift can be rolled along just like a piece of rolling luggage. It may also be separated into two pieces weighing less than 25 pounds each when necessary.
Our split sling allows access to a patients clothing and undergarments for toileting...
