Solutions for transferring users up from the floor
If a user has fallen to the floor, it is important to first make sure that he/she is not hurt. Place a pillow under the user's head and, if necessary, call for assistance. If the user is not able to get up from the floor independently, Handicare's range offers many different solutions for transferring from a prone position on the floor. Which solution is the most suitable depends on the activity level of the user as well as on the number of available caregivers.
From simple to complex scenarios
Hereunder you will find Handicare's solutions for manual transfers of active and somewhat active users, from simple to more complex scenarios. More information about the different transfer aids and how to use them can be found on the respective product pages.
Combination of devices provides individually adapted solutions
