The transfer board is intended to bridge shorter gaps when performing seated transfers. The board’s low friction upper surface allows the user to transfer independently or with assistance. Immedia Transfer Boards are used when transfering between bed and wheelchair / shower chair, between wheelchair / chair / toilet chair or to and from the car. All Transfer Boards have a non-slip surface on the underside. Combining a transfer board with a glide cushion provides even lower friction and is recommended when the transfer involves bare skin, for instance to and from a shower chair or toilet.The Immedia Dolphin is a sturdy and stable transfer board uniquely designed for transfer to the toilet. The board has cut-outs for positioning against the wheel of the wheelchair and non-slip pads, which allows good positioning and avoids sliding out of place. The cut-out allows the user to remain on the board while on the toilet.
The Immedia Dolphin Transfer Board is a uniquely shaped patient transfer board designed to make sliding transfers easy to and from the toilet.
The Dolphin Board is designed to bridge small gaps between a users wheelchair or shower chair to a toilet. The unique ring shaped end is placed over the toilet seat and can remain in place whilst the client is on the toilet.
The main advantage of this type of board is the shape and the fact it can remain in place over the toilet. This means the patient does not have to exert additional energy during this transfer by removing the board. This in turn can reduce shear and friction on the patients skin.
The Dolphin Board features non slip material on the underside to prevent unwanted movement. The ring shaped end fits over a toilet seat and can remain in place for the duration of the visit to the toilet. The cut outs allow close positioning to a wheelchair and are designed to negotiate wheelchair wheels.
