Patient handling equipment is designed and manufactured to aid a carer or nurse in the transportation of a patient from one location to another. Using this kind of equipment ensures that transfers are much safer, which protects patients and staff, who are also shielded from any potential injury that could be caused by poor manual handling. In order to achieve effective manual handling without causing any injuries, it can be done through correct techniques and the right tools.
Transfer and standing aids are ideal for patients who have very limited mobility for a short period, products can include transfer slides, leg raisers and rota stands for example.
