Balance pivot is a method of using leverage, not strength or machines to safely and easily move patients without risk of injury to caregiver or patient. There are 14 techniques, but only a few are required for most patients. We show a 125 lb woman moving a 250 lb man by herself with no previous experience and with only one hand. This demonstration technique clearly points out the key principle that makes this simple method so effective.
These principles have been in use in other industries for centuries but were not applied to moving the human body. The result of applying the techniques is a dramatic reduction in injuries that normally occur in the nursing profession from manual lifting.
