Banana Board - PRIME - Seated Transfer Board
About this deal
Hospital Direct’s high-slide transfer board helps patients achieve slide board transfers between two surfaces.
If the layout of the house permits, it is possible to fix a track (straight, jointed or curved) so that the person can move him/herself (or is assisted to move) in a sling from the bed directly to another room in the house. Versatile and Portable: Banana boards are lightweight and portable, making them easy to transport and use in various settings.mattress elevators usually have a hinged frame which is placed between, and strapped to, the bed base and the mattress. Tapered ends and a hand grip assist in positioning and low profile anti-slip pads on the underside prevent the board from slipping during the transfer. For information about choosing a standard, extra long or extra wide bed, contact the National Bed Federation (NBF). Safety: Banana boards provide a stable platform for transferring between surfaces, reducing the risk of falls, slips, or accidents during the transfer process.
The BeasyGlyder Transfer Board has been designed to allow a user to easily glide along the board on the round swivelling seat that can rotate through a full 360 degrees meaning that it is easy to use and extremely practical for the user. As most people spend between a third and a half of their lives in bed, it is important to ensure that the time spent there is as comfortable as possible, and that it is easy to move around or get in or out of the bed. Equipment such as hand blocks or lifting poles can enable some people to lift part of their own weight whilst the carer is assisting them to move.The Banana Board Prime Seated Transfer Board takes on the features of the patented Q2 Board but is slightly smaller to appeal to the general population and paediatric market. Lifting poles (or pull handles) are designed to make moving around, moving into semi-lying positions or getting in and out of bed easier. The Banana transfer board has been designed to assist in the seated transfer of a patient between two surfaces. The Quintal Banana Board is NOT designed for lifting but is designed to be used for seated patient transfers across gaps no wider than the inside of the anti-slip pads. The Q2 Banana Board Prime is a robust and comfortable transfer board developed by the manufacturer of the Banana Board.
Independence: Banana boards enable individuals with limited mobility to perform transfers independently, reducing the need for assistance from caregivers or support personnel. The whole Transfer Board weighs less than just 1kg, which is perfect for anyone who has less mobility. They can be used at home, in healthcare facilities, or while travelling, ensuring individuals have the necessary support. Raising one end of a domestic bed or not raising all its legs puts strain on the bed and it can collapse. There is no knee break option and, like most mattress inclinators and pillow lifters, it is likely that the person will slip down the bed.The Banana Board Prime is a compact, lightweight transfer board developed by the manufacturer of the Banana Q2 Board. The super light 1kg Banana Board features a carry handle for transportation Does the Banana Board Prime Support Independent Transfer? To help prevent the occupant from sliding down either in a sitting or lying position the bed can be angled backwards by 3° or 4°. This Banana Transfer Board is designed to assist in the seated transfer of a patient between two surfaces. The trays are available with raised edges, recesses for plates and cups and slip-resistant tray mats.
If possible the person making the claim should complete this form, but a family member, carer or medical professional may complete the form on the claimants behalf.
If a person is unable to take any of their weight through their legs, advice should ALWAYS be sought from a therapist as to the safest method of assisting or moving them out of bed. Mattress inclinators (or mattress variators) are powered devices which can help a person sit up and lie down independently. Both the pumping or winding action is quite hard work for the carer and the bed occupant can have quite a jerky ride. A non-slip or textured surface helps to maintain a secure grip, preventing slipping or sliding during transfers.
