Safe patient transfers do not have to be difficult or dangerous. It is possible to manually transfer your loved one from their wheelchair, bed or another surface such as a toilet or regular chair. The safe patient transfer can be performed safely and easily with only simple inexpensive tools.
Transfer from the wheelchair to the alternate surface using a manual zero lift method. This method is named the Balance Pivot for the principle employed in the transfer. The Balance Pivot can reduce the transfer load by up to 90% making the patient transfer safe and easy. Use the Swivel lateral transfer plate and avoid all the stress and strain normally associated with manual transfers. This simple device is smaller than a laptop and strong enough to transfer a car.
Transferring patients manually is difficult and results in literally thousands of injuries every week. A simple solution to this problem was discovered when a Texas man was faced with the choice of continuous back pain from a bad back along with an occasional fall transferring his wife. All the healthcare workers could suggest was to consider transferring his wife to a resident care facility. Faced with such a choice he discovered the principles that are now known as the Balance Pivot Patient Transfer Method.
We can apply the leverage principle in a way that is very similar to the appliance transfer process. The manual no-lift transfer techniques are used to transfer people feature a gait belt and device known as a lateral transfer plate or simply a secure swivel. The fulcrum is the tibia bone and the lever is the gait belt. Using the balance pivot method requires the use of as little as 10% of the patients body weight. This means a 200 lb man will present a transfer load to the caregiver or approximately 20 lbs.

Safe patient handling is talked about a lot in the nursing circles. It refers to programs, policies and equipment that enable nurses to transfer patients without causing strain or injury to either party. You could break the transfer process down to mechanical and leverage transfers. Neither safe patient handling method allows for lifting of the patient. But few nurses let alone home care people really understand the leverage techniques required to make a transfer safe and simple.
