Transfer Aids Australia
Caregivers and nurses need to move patients at one point or another for treatment purposes or sanitation. Moving an individual from one side of the bed to another to give an injection can be hectic for a nurse and painful for the patient. Patients also differ in weight and size, which makes it complex for the care providers. Also, there are heavy and bulky medical appliances for diagnosis and patient evaluation, which cannot be moved to a patient’s bed hence the need to move patients. Transfer of patients can be for short distances from bed to bed or long distances between hospitals usually for more extensive and specific treatment by specialists. Doctors and caregivers use transfer aids to make the process more convenient and comfortable. We deliver all our Transfer Aids to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and all other major cities in Australia.
