Designed for Effortless Surface-to-Surface Transfers
The Mini-Gyn Transfer Board, initially designed for urology and gynaey surgery, can be used for all transfers between two narrow surfaces, such as bed to trolley/table, trolley to table and vice versa. Acting like a tank track, the board moves across the gap between two surfaces for a safe and effortless patient transfer.
Suitable for Independent Transfers
Though great for use with assistance, the Mini-Gyn Board is also useful when asking people to transfer themselves, which is suitable for all situations where the patient has use of legs and upper body strength, but simply needs something to help them slide over and navigate the gap. Watch the video below to see the Mini-Gyn Transfer Board used during an independent transfer.
