The Sally Board is an assistive transfer board which allows a carer to help a seated patient transfer from one surface to another. It is great for use for transfers between wheelchairs, cars, beds and chairs, increasing stability and balance for a safer experience. Individuals who suffer from limited mobility due to age, disability, injury or illness can struggle to transfer from one area to another. This board prevents them from being restricted to a bed or chair, allowing them to utilise a wheelchair or enjoy tasks in different environments.
This board comes in three different designs, allowing you to pick whichever will best suit your unique needs. It comes in a small curved design, a medium straight and a large straight. All three variations are lightweight, with numerous unique features to best serve you.
The smaller curved Sally Board has one handle for the carer to stabilise the patient, also having a grip on either side. It has a smooth top surface, although curved edges. The smaller board is great for smaller to average sized individuals, having a Safe Working Load of 130kg when the transfer gap is 20-30cm. If the transfer gap is less than 20cm, it can support up to 180kg.
The medium and large straight Sally Boards have the same design, only differing in size. They have 3 handles on each side of the board, allowing ease of manoeuvring and being great if more than one carer is assisting with the transfer. They also have 4 grip strips on the underside of the board, keeping the board in place and increasing stability. Both the medium and large boards have a Safe Working Load of 300kg.
All three boards have a lightweight design, being lighter than many other transfer boards available on the market because of its construction. The plastic nature of the boards all ensures they are flexible, making transfers between beds and chairs which are not the same height a whole lot easier. It is also a radiolucent material, ensuring it can be used for x-rays. Both the medium and large straight boards have been designed with hanging holes on one end, easily being stored on a hook for accessibility.
