Medicare System offers the Professional Transfer Kit, comprised of support, slipping, and rotation devices to help caregivers reduce the effort required during tasks of transfer and mobilization of patients with reduced mobility.

The kit features a support band for mobilization, two holding belts, a sliding tubular, a band for legs control, a rotating disc for the floor, a rotating cushion and an adaptable transfer table. It also includes a handy backpack, a training manual of mobilization techniques, and a DVD with videos of use.

Aiding transfers and mobilization in this way may help reduce the incidence of back pain among caregivers.

In addition, proper use of the transfer kit may also increase patient safety and avoid the risk of falls, according to a media release from the Barcelona, Spain-headquartered company. Its US-based office is in Troy, Michigan.
