Transfer Boards are devices designed to bridge the gap between two surfaces when carrying out a seated transfer. A Handling Belt may be used to assist the client across the board.
2-Move Lateral Transfer Boards
The 2-Move is designed for lateral client transfers. Its low friction cover revolves around the board allowing for smooth transfers from one level surface to another (e.g., bed to bed, bed to stretcher, stretcher to x-ray table, etc.). The board and cover are used together, but are sold separately.
2-Moves are available in two (2) widths with a shorter version for pediatric use.
