The Drive Medical RTL6046 Transfer Board is an innovative transfer safety accessory designed to aid patient transfers from one point to another with one point primarily being a wheelchair. The transfer board makes patient transfers more easy and safe. It is ideal for people with limited mobility that confines them to a wheelchair due to injuries, surgeries or disabilities. Active wheelchair patients can use the board for transfers by themselves. Weak or partially active patients who require extra assistance from caregivers will also find the board beneficial in assuring the safety and convenience of both the patient and the caregiver.
The Drive Plastic Transfer Board has a tough plastic construction that makes it incredibly lightweight but durable. The board is strong enough to support a weight of up to two hundred and fifty pounds or one hundred and thirteen kilograms. The plastic construction makes the board lighter than traditional wooden boards and more easy to use. To use the board, the user simply has to place a third of it on the first transfer point and another third of it on the other. The rest of the board covers the space between the two points allowing the user to conveniently slide themselves between them. It is recommended to keep the wheelchair at a diagonal position during the transfer. The Plastic Transfer Board has a slight peak in the middle with the sides at a slant to ensure a smooth transfer.
