Tips for a successful transfer

These tips can help you do transfers more safely and efficiently:

If your healthcare provider advises using a transfer board,
always use it with a gait or belt during transfers.

Keep it within easy reach. Never substitute another object if the transfer board is not nearby.

Move slowly and carefully. Pay close attention to your movements and the location of your body parts as you
transfer across the board.

Transfer between surfaces of similar height.
Or transfer to a slightly lower surface.

Aids in reducing work for you and your caregiver.

Protect your skin. It means keeping your skin from getting pinched or rubbed during the transfer.
For instance, don’t drag your buttocks on the board.

And always wear clothing or use a transfer sheet.

Keep your body parts in the correct position. Keep your feet flat on the floor throughout most types of transfers.

Stop as needed as you move across the board and reposition your legs and feet.

Do this with one leg at a time, keeping each foot aligned with the knee.

To prevent stress on the wrist or overstretching your hand while moving, try making your hands into fists.

Support your body weight on the flat surface between the knuckles.

When transferring, never put your hands or fingers under the board.

Wear any orthopaedic devices you have while transferring.

And always wear sturdy shoes when possible.

If you have decreased strength or sensation in your upper body,
work with a caregiver to help you transfer.

As you grow more comfortable using a transfer board,
you may learn to use the transfer board without a caregiver.
