Every medical facility performs lateral patient transfers on a daily basis. There are many types of devices used to perform these transfers including patient slider boards, patient roller boards and our unique EZ-Tranz Gold Transfer RollBoard. Lateral patient transfers occur for a variety of reasons including:
- Elderly patients that find it difficult to walk or move about.
- Patients with disabilities that impair their movement.
- Patients that are under anesthetic a or unconscious.
There are a variety of tools at the disposal of medical professionals to perform this transfer. The tool shown on this page is the EZ-Tranz Gold Transfer RollBoard. This consists of a lightweight foam frame with plastic handles at either end for easy handling. There is a poly cover stretched over the foam core to act as a conveyor to help effortlessly transfer the patient from one bed or table to another. Simply lock the casters on both beds, log roll your patient, slip the roller board underneath and then convey the patient to the new bed or table. By using the low friction cover and foam core, the stress on your staff is minimized. The patient transfer rollboard is available in 2 different sizes.
- Medium Length is 30″ long, our most popular sized used in most OR’s around the world.
- Long length is 48″ long and is designed for larger patients or in situations where a longer rollboard is needed.
It is very important to use safe patient transferring guidelines and to ensure you have adequate personnel to perform a transfer before you begin. The patient transfer rollboard is our premium patient transfer device and is the easiest for staff to handle and the most comfortable for your patients. Make sure you pair it with a Wall Rack for EZ-Tranz Gold Transfer Boards to ensure your investment is protected and that it is clean and ready for use whenever the need may arise.
