The 35lb Transfer Limit

Did you know that the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends healthcare workers not lift anything exceeding 35 pounds.

But… did you know you do not need mechanical lift equipment to keep the transfer load under 35 pounds.

Manual transfers using leverage techniques keep the transfer weight under the 35lb limit for the majority of patients using a simple tool smaller than a laptop. This means you don’t have to go hunting for a large bulky machine, just to get someone transferred. No waiting, no charging, no pushing a big machine around the building, and no more humiliation for the patient. In fact no more lifting, twisting or swinging.
