The Soft Transfer Belt is a popular belt used for transferring patients.
Two Carers normally work together when using this product. If necessary, one Carer can work alone, which depends on the patient and Carer’s ability. If used in a care facility it may also depend on the facility’s manual handling policy.
About the Soft Transfer Belt
The belt is padded for comfort. The inside is a soft velour material. The outside is a nylon material, and comes in either a blue or black colour option.
