I can't thank Kelly and her staff enough for how helpful and caring they have been during my mother's recovery. It is obvious that they have the client's best interests in mind. I highly recommend this company!

Transfer aids are a form of mobility aid that are often recommended by doctors. These aids are designed to help a person move from one part of their home to another. People who are suffering from temporary conditions can rent these transfer aids, and they can also be purchased outright by people who require them on a long-term basis. What is a Transfer Aid?

Transfer Aids Promote Safe Mobility

A standing and transfer aid is a simple way to move around if you struggle with mobility. These aids are typically used for helping a person move between a chair, their bed, a wheelchair, or another part of the home. Using a transfer aid is safer than just using a wheelchair, because those with serious mobility problems may not be able to transfer to wheelchairs safely without the use of a transfer aid. Transfer aids are versatile and easy to use once you are trained on how to use them appropriately, and allow the individual to stand while being moved around their home if they are using a Sit-To-Stand aid. Other transfer aids like patient lifts are used if the person can not bear enough weight while standing. The sling holds the individual securely in the air while being transferred. Using a Sit-To-Stand transfer aid is easy. A person simply needs to sit with their feet touching their ground, pull the transfer aid so that the shins touch the knee pads and the feet touch the foot platform. A person then holds onto the grab bar and pulls upwards. Then, the Sit-To-Stand aid’s split-seat is returned to its locked position creating a solid seat for the patient to sit on. Now, the Sit-To-Stand user can be pushed to their destination in the home. This is a tool designed to be used by a person with mobility troubles, along with their caregiver. It makes moving around the home safe, and the strong frame of the transfer aid is durable enough to hold a single person’s weight.

Who is a Transfer Aid For?

Transfer aids are ideal for a wide range of people. If you have recently undergone surgery and need help getting around, these aids can help you move around the home. People who have experienced broken bones or who have recently undergone major surgery will also benefit from a Maryland transfer aid rental if they need an aid on a short-term basis. Those who suffer from a permanent mobility problem can improve their home experience with transfer aids such as those offered by Freedom Mobility. From paralysis to joint pain, these mobility aids help with a wide range of medical troubles and often become an important, permanent home appliance.

Features of a Sit-To-Stand Aid

Transfer aids can be customized to suit a person’s mobility requirements, height, and weight. In the case of the Sit-To-Stand, the ergonomic grab bar makes it easy to pull upwards, and the open base, low-friction casters and padded split seat make it easy for the individual to mount and dismount. There are also shin pads that make moving around the home with the aid perfectly comfortable. Most transfer aid can be customized to a person’s exact needs, ensuring people of all heights and sizes get the support they need around their home.
