Patient Transfer Training.

Patient transfer injuries continue to lead the list of the most common for workplace injuries.  The key to reducing these injuries is training and quality transfer tools.  The swivel is the most portable and versatile transfer tool on the market.  Training prepares the caregiver to move patients quickly and safely.

There are ten different methods to transfer patients utilizing the swivel, although most facilities use only four methods  depending on the condition of the patient being transferred.  The swivel can be used as a one person assist, transfer to toilet, tub, car, bed or other surface.The swivel secures the patient’s feet and permits a balance pivot.  Once this simple move is learned it is amazing how easy it is to move even large patients safely and quickly.
