Sliding Transfer Board / Wheelchair Transfer Board
Hospital Direct’s Samarit Tetraglide is an outstanding transfer board for patients or clients who need to move between sitting surfaces independently.
The Samarit Tetraglide is perfect for those who need to transfer from bed to wheelchair/chair, chair to wheelchair/bed and wheelchair to chair/bed with just a little assistance. The board’s lightweight construction makes it easy to use and enables service users to transfer effortlessly. Though lightweight, the sliding transfer board supports weights up to 200kg, making it a long-term, durable solution for virtually all users.
The sliding transfer board has an unusual fishtail design, which has proven popular in numerous sectors, although it was originally designed for tetraplegics. Most competitor models don’t fit around wheelchair wheels, which poses frequent challenges for many users. However, this transfer board’s fishtail design helps the board fit around wheelchair wheels, making sitting transfers easier than ever before.
We manufacture the Samarit Tetraglide as part of the wider Samarit range in our Shropshire premises, where we manufacture all patient handling products with attention to detail to ensure the highest quality.
