Patient Transfer Solution for the Home Caregiver

Problem: The safe transfer of a senior with physical mobility impairment currently requires costly equipment such as ceiling mounted slings that are difficult to use and place high physical demands on a family caregiver.

Solution: A novel transfer solution is being created by Able Innovations, as part of the InnovAging Network, that reduces the physical demands on the caregiver and allows simpler transfers to occur.

Impact: Without a transfer solution that is cost effective and safe for the patient and caregiver to use, patients are forced to enter care.  This solution provides an alternative avoiding the high personal and system cost of entering care.
