The Economy Extension Straps minimise the risk of carer injuries during patient supine transfers.
Hospital Direct’s Economy Extension Straps reduce the risk of health professionals over-reaching and stretching while manoeuvring patients. The wonderfully simple, flat webbing straps have a handle at each end so that carers can safely complete patient supine transfers from bed to bed or bed to trolley.
Care-givers love how simple it is to attach the lateral transfer straps. Simply pass one of the loops through a flat slide sheet handle and then through the other looped handle and pull tight until the strap is secure.
Hospital Direct sells the patient-handling straps in pairs and recommends using the straps with any patient-handling device with secure handles. If you need advice about the Economy Extension Straps, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
