Reducing friction during manual transfer
The HandyTube™ manual transfer aid is a sliding sheet that facilitates shorter transfers in bed, between two beds, or bed to stretcher by reducing friction between the patient and the underlying surface. The sheet can be used for both average weight and bariatric patients. Made of high-quality, low-friction fabric, the HandyTube accessory retains its sliding capabilities even after long-term use and repeated washings.
It is available in three function-specific models. Short is primarily used to move a patient higher up in bed. The larger long model helps turn a patient in bed or perform transfers between two beds. The handled wide model can both turn and move the patient in bed, and can also be used for two-caregiver transfer of a patient between two beds.
