For those confined to a wheelchair, one of the most difficult mobility issues is moving to and from the chair to an automobile, bath or bed. A transfer board or transfer bench can make all the difference in the world, as far as facilitating easy transfers. And some of the models, like the DMI 8" X 27.5" white plastic patient transfer board, are inexpensive, lightweight, easy to use, clean, durable and will hold weights of up to 500 pounds.
A sliding transfer board, like those offered from Eagle Health, Snap N Save and Drive Medical, make the job even easier. These units have legs that can adjust to your height and fold up for easy storage or transport. They can also be easily configured to either right-hand or left-hand tub setups. For extra strength and weight capacity of up to 600 pounds, a Bariatric wheelchair transfer board is a great choice.
