Secrets of Easy Patient Handling

Patient handling is all about the technique of applied leverage.  Your appliance delivery person certainly knows that.  And when he shows up he will use a simple tool to move a heavy object without a lot of stress and strain. You can do the same.

Moving patients or transferring family members is no different.  Patient transfer is about mastering the skills and utilizing simple tools to get the job done safely and without the stress and strain normally associated with patient transfers.

The Balance Pivot transfer technique is a method developed to secure and move a patient using leverage that will reduce the transfer load by 90%.  That turns a 160 lb person into a 16 lb transfer load.  An amount of weight much easier to handle. The load now resting on the secure lateral transfer plate is quickly and easily moved to the new location.
