Self-transferring vs transferring with an attendant

The benefits of self-transferring with the Handi-Move® Body Support...

Many people with limited mobility are dependent on third parties when carrying out a transfer. However, subject to certain aids, specific individuals (depending on their tone, core stability, cognitive functioning, etc.) can carry out the transfers independently.

Benefits of independent transfers

  • Staying at home longer
  • Less chance of incontinence
  • Better self-image
  • Higher self-confidence

When self-transferring, the person always uses the Handi-Move® Body Support. By means of their own body weight, the Body Support will assume the shape of the person and pick him/her up at the height of the torso and the upper legs.

In addition to the advantage of being able to transfer independently, the Handi-Move Body Support also has additional benefits.
