You may wonder how that could be since patients weigh more than groceries but using a technique called the Balance Pivot you can reduce the patient transfer weight to about the same weight as a bag of groceries and easily move them from the bed to the wheel chair, from the wheel chair to the bathroom, or even the car.

Balance Pivot takes advantage of the same leverage principles material handlers have used for years to handle heavy loads with minimal injuries.  Healthcare workers are injured at 7 times the national rate because they do not understand these techniques.  We hope to change that in the next decade with the help of the internet.  Discover how to turn a 200 lb patient transfer challenge into a 20 lb simple transfer in minutes using a simple light portable tool and one of 15 techniques.
