Banana Board Prime Patient Transfer Board

The Banana Board Prime Patient Transfer Board enables wheelchair users to transfer between two surfaces, including from wheelchair to car, wheelchair to toilet, wheelchair to chair and vice versa. The tapered edges, carry handle and sturdy design enable independent transfer, while the comfortable but tough board can hold everyone from children to adults weighing up to 30 stone (200kg).

What Is the Banana Transfer Board For?

The Banana Board Prime is a patient transfer board that supports the transfer of patients between two surfaces. Examples of what the Banana Board Prime enables includes the following transfers (and vice versa):

  • Wheelchair to bed
  • Wheelchair to toilet
  • Wheelchair to chair
  • Wheelchair to car
  • Wheelchair to wheelchair
  • Most surface to surface transfers

Please note that the Transfer Board isn't limited to this, and can be used in most situations where a wheelchair user needs to transfer from one surface to another. This can include between wheelchairs, household furniture, work furniture and more.

How Do I Transfer on the Banana Board Prime?

The Banana Board Prime is suitable for side-to-side and straight transfer. To complete a transfer, please see the below image, then copy the following instructions:

How to use the Banana Board Prime

  1. Place the Banana Board underneath your legs, with the non-stick surface pointing down, with each end on the two surfaces you wish to transfer to and from
  2. Once secure, move your body into the middle of the board, without letting the board move from beneath you
  3. Move your body onto the surface that you wish to move on to, and move the Banana Board from beneath you

Who Can Use the Banana Patient Transfer Board?

The Banana Board Prime is suitable for use by people who are able to transfer themselves from their wheelchair to another place while using their arms as leverage, and by those who require help from a carer. The Transfer Patient Board is designed to enable transfer from surface to surface, and can be used independently if required. Suitable users include:

  • Adults
  • Children
  • Users up to 30 stone (200kg)
  • Users capable of independent transfer
  • Users not capable of independent transfer

How Safe Is the Banana Board Prime?

The Banana Board Prime has been designed to be far safer than its original. The board now includes two non-slip pads at either side of the board, enabling you to move freely from one side to the other without the board slipping from underneath you. Lastly, the tapered edges are ideal for slipping underneath you efficiently, while the tough, durable design can hold up to 200kg.

How Much Weight Can the Banana Board Prime Hold?

The Banana Board Prime can hold up to 200kg or 30 stone. This means that the board can help anyone and everyone transfer, including paediatric patients who weigh under 10 stone, to bariatric adults who way over 20 stone.

Does the Banana Board Prime Support Independent Transfer?

The Banana Board can support transfer in patients who require assistance during the transfer. However, it has been designed to enable easy transfer in patients who do not require help too. The non-slip pads stick to your wheelchair and the surface you are moving too helping to prevent movement, while the rigid board will hold your weight as you move yourself to the next surface.

How Easy Is the Wheelchair Transfer Board to Use?

It is designed to be easy to use, with the whole transfer taking little time depending on the level of mobility from the user. The non-stick pads will keep the board in place, while the patient moves from surface to surface, while the tough board will continue to hold their weight. Tapered edges will also slip underneath the patient easily, helping to minimise stress and effort level during the transfer.

Is the Banana Transfer Board Lightweight?

Another reason why the Banana Board is so easy to use is because of how lightweight it actually is. The whole Transfer Board weighs less than just 1kg, which is perfect for anyone who has less mobility. By weighing this amount, it allows the patient to easily slide the board underneath themselves for the transfer, before carrying it with them until it is needed again.

How Easy Is the Wheelchair Transfer Board to Transport?

As the Wheelchair Banana Board weighs just 1kg, and features a unique carry handle in the middle of the board that allows the user to carry the board easily. This is ideal for using, and then carrying it until it is needed again. The Transfer Board can then easily be stored on the wheelchair or in the car.

The Banana Prime is designed to be a lightweight, comfortable and easy-to-use transfer board. The rigid design supports independent movement, while the tapered edges help to improve comfort and user experience during use. The hard-wearing design ensures that you get your money's worth too, promising to last long after purchase.

How Do I Clean the Banana Board Prime?

If your Banana Board Prime gets dirty during use, then you can clean it before you use it again. To do this we recommend that you use either actichlor or alcohol wipes to wipe any dirt and contaminants off your board.
