Transfer Devices

Ailing seniors sometimes endure an uncomfortable position just to avoid the painful transition to a more comfortable one. Devices based on lifts, straps, boards, and more can make it easier to change positions. 

Common types of transfer devices include:

  • Strap-based leg lifters
  • Turning aids
  • Curved boards for sliding into and out of position
  • Specialized bed rails
