Transferring patients, whether in hospital, at home, or at the scene of an incident, requires specialist equipment to ensure that no further injury is caused. We offer a wide range of transfer devices for all scenarios from reliable brands such as Ferno, GB UK Healthcare, Promove and Samarit, as well as our own DS Medical transfer devices.
Transfer boards such as our banana boards at DS Medical are used to help a patient move from one surface to another. Most often, banana boards are used in hospital or at home on an individual or assisted basis, to help patients move from bed to chair, or wheelchair to toilet. Our boards are available either individually or as part of a complete patient handling kit.
In emergency scenarios, patients may be unconscious or unable to move without assistance. In these situations, carrying chairs with the appropriate safety straps and harnesses offer a solution. Evacuation and transfer slings are ideal for use in confined spaces where a hoist is unavailable or impractical to safely extract a patient.
