The Butterfly transfer board is intended to bridge small gaps between chairs and the wing reduces friction on the transfer.
The Butterfly Boards feature a non slip underside to prevent unwanted movement. Combining the Butterfly Board with a Glide Wing provides lower friction and is recommended when the transfer involves bare skin, for instance to and from a shower chair or toilet.
The cut out on the transfer board is designed so that the board can be placed against the wheel of a self-propelled wheelchair.
The wing can reduced friction against the skin, this works particularly well on bare skin or damp skin transfers from the shower for example. If there is any delicate skin in this area the Glide Wing makes a huge difference helping to protect the skin from damage that can potentially be caused by the transfer.
