ENHANCED Immedia 2Move Transfer BoardThe enhanced Immedia 2Move transfer board bridges the gap and evens out the height difference between two horizontal surfaces like transfers between beds, stretchers, x-ray tables, operation tables, etc. The foam construction makes the transfer comfortable and improves safety and efficiency for horizontal transfers. ENHANCED Immedia SatinSheet In-bed SystemSatinSheet is designed to assist with movement of active to dependent users. It is a complete in-bed system for turning and positioning. User-friendly moving and handling solutions are critical to ensure safe working environments. With SatinSheet no application or removal of the product is required. It reduces friction between the user and the bed. By reducing friction, two major challenges are addressed and decreased; the workload on the caregivers, that reduces work-related injuries and the forces on the patient that reduces the risk of pressure sores.
