Moving and handling
We have selected some of the most useful items for those who have difficulties getting themselves from one chair to another, or out of the car, as well as a selection of items useful for moving patients.
Swivel seats enable turning out of a car to be much easier especially when used in conjunction with the Handy bar to pull or lean on. It can be very difficult to move a person from seat to seat or up in a bed, or back on a chair. Slide sheets really aid this movement by creating a very slippery surface to move the person against. Transfer boards, handlings belts and the rota stands all help with patient movement too and lessen the strain on the carer.
