Transfer benches

Transfer benches are bathroom transfer aids that help a person move from one part of the bathroom such as the commode to the bathtub or the shower area. These benches are shaped like regular benches but have a special feature that allows the patient to sit on one side of the bench and slide down to the other side. The bench is placed near a bathtub or a commode and the patient sits comfortable on one side. The user or a caregiver then, gently pushes the patient down into place. They have comfortable seats, and the sliding rail can be locked securely to prevent any kind of mishap. Permanent transfer systems involve the installation of rails in the bathroom from the origin of transfer to the target area. The mobile chair is then placed on the rails and used for transferring the patient.

At Patient-Room we have a wide range of transfer benches from top selling brands such as Drive Medical, Graham-Field, Maddak, etc.
