A portable, lightweight transfer board that can be folded to 16 ¼ inches when not in use for eased transport and storage is available through the Wayne, NJ-based company Maddak Inc. The X-Fer Rail Portable Transfer Rail is designed to enable safe transfers to and from a wheelchair, and can fit in a backpack, wheelchair bag, carry-on, or briefcase, according to the company’s website. The board’s portable design is intended to promote use outside of the home and reduce shoulder strain often linked to independent transfers.

The product’s open seating design aims to reduce the risk of friction-based skin tears, and it offers a weight capacity of 250 pounds. The X-Fer Rail Portable Transfer Rail measures 30 inches long when unfolded, and 16.25 inches long folded. Features a 12-month warranty on parts and labor.
