“Healthcare workers now rank #1 in being at risk for musculoskeletal injuries at work,” according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, March 2004.
The Transfer PAL has a closed-cell foam padding for patient comfort and easy clean-up. A Kleen Kover, a disposable fitted sheet is available. The hard outer shell allows PAL to slide easily against all types of material. The handles enable staff to utilize a trapeze grip that allows for proper body mechanics.
“We’ve given staff the ability to greatly reduce strain when transferring, that’s why we believe this unique device to be superior to a sheet,” said Michael Wilson, designer and owner.
The design of the Transfer PAL eliminates the problem of patients rolling backwards on the sheet.
Two sizes are available – regular and bariatric.
