The BeasyGlyder is a great solution when the arm of the wheelchair is not removable or the wheel of the chair is an obstacle. Sliding disk greatly reduces friction and reduces the risk of skin breakdown and back injury. The crescent shape design also facilitates the caregivers natural transfer motions. The transfer seat and board base are the same diameter. The transfer board is made of high impact polymer that is stress tested to 1,100 lbs. May be used for both independent and assisted transfers.
Transfer Board helps the patient transfer between surfaces of similar or slightly different heights. If you have decreased upper body strength, work with a caregiver to help you transfer. Using the industry standard of “a third, a third, a third”, place one third of the board on the surface you are transferring from, place another third onto the surface you are transferring to, and the remaining third is the space in between the two transfer points.
Support your body weight on the flat surface as you move slowly and carefully paying attention to your movement and the location of your body as you transfer across the board. Don’t drag your buttocks on the board. Keep your body in the correct position keeping your feet flat on the floor throughout most types of transfers. When transferring, never put your hands or fingers under the board.
