The mobility goes wherever the person with the mobility issue goes. Any viable mobility solution should be able to do the same. All that is needed is a simple portable secure lateral transfer plate called the Swivel or the Transfer Buddy by some. When this 12″X 12″ device is combined with the Balance Pivot transfer technique the transfer load literally melts by an amazing 90%, turning a 200 lb patient into a 20 lb easy transfer load. The result is almost any caregiver can move almost any patient without fear of injury by either party.
There are four simple steps to the transfer process. Set’em, secure’em, tip’em and turn’em. These short terms are used to remember the steps.
