Optimum Solutions

Bed to bed and bed to chair/commode chair transfers:

Albert, Barbara: the patient can transfer independently or, if necessary, use a standing aid with some assistance from carers.
Carl: a bariatric passive lifter (mobile lifter or permanent/semi-permanent ceiling lift) is generally used, but a standing and raising aid may be appropriate to stimulate mobilisation.
Doris, Emma: a passive lifter is ideal. A complete solution always includes an optimum bariatric sling.

Lying to lying transfers: lateral transfer of supine patients is best accomplished by a sliding sheet or suitable solution to transfer to a height-adjustable bariatric stretcher/bed. The transfer chair is another option for a lateral transfer.

Lifting from floor: a readily available mobile bariatric passive lifter helps carers deal with unforeseen situations.
