Transfer board / banana board
Hospital Direct’s Samarit transfer board gives patients the independence they need to move from bed to chair and back again.
This innovative sitting transfer board helps patients regain their independence as they move from bed to chair and back again – all without assistance from a carer. Whether the patient needs to move from a bed to a wheelchair, from a regular chair to a wheelchair or from a wheelchair to a bed, this empowering transfer board makes it much easier to move around independently. Patients can even use the board to move onto WC facilities and into cars.
The transfer board’s lightweight construction makes it easy for users to span gaps between bed and chair, enabling them to transfer between the two effortlessly. Both strong and versatile, the board has a 220kg weight limit, accommodating most service users. Plus, the board features an anti-slide, adhesive coating to prevent slipping during transfers.
It’s easy to clean the transfer board with soapy, warm water and your organisation’s standard cleaning chemicals.
- Gap < 30 cm = 130kg
- Weight: 2.6kg
- Size: 80 x 33cm/32 x 13 inch
As the largest transfer board we stock, this is a great place to start for patients and clients who need assistance during independent transfers.
