TESTIMONIALS

It works like a bomb! I can now transfer on my own. It works best when transferring between different levels either up or down.”(Quadriplegic person)

WELCOME TO QUADRISLIDE TRANSFER BOARD
WHAT IS A TRANSFER BOARD?

A transfer board is used by individuals with impaired mobility to move laterally over short distances for example from a wheel chair to a car seat or from a bed to a wheel chair.

A typical transfer board is a flat board made from wood or similar material. One end is placed under the buttocks of the individual and the other end is placed on the desired surface for transfer. Transfer takes place by lifting the individual, either by a caregiver or by himself, up and across in very short movements and setting him down onto the board after every movement. This is repeated until the individual reaches the other side. This method of transfer can easily cause rubbing or pinching of the skin and the buttocks should not be dragged across the board.

INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW QUADRISLIDE

The Quadrislide greatly reduces rubbing or pinching of the skin because you now sit on a seat that can slide across to the other side. In contrast with the typical transfer board, you CAN DRAG YOURSELF ACROSS! This unique transfer board has a seat that moves on a track of two rows of marbles. The seat is elevated above the track and rides on the rolling marbles, moving you with very little effort across to the other side

The Quadrislide is a sliding transfer board with a seat that moves over two rows of marbles. There are 78 marbles sharing you weight as you easily slide across to the other side. When using the Quadrislide all you need to do is get onto the seat and your caregiver can slide you across with ease and very little, if any, friction. Once you get used to this it becomes possible for you to make the transfer mostly on your own, as shown in the pictures.

The Quadrislide comes into its own when you need to transfer between two surfaces of different heights, for example, from a car seat to a lower wheel chair or, from a wheel chair to a higher bed. Gravity causes friction and it becomes extremely strenuous when going uphill but with the Quadrislide the marbles roll, taking turns as it were, to carry you up the slope! Needless to say, downhill is the easiest. READ MORE
