Non-wearable transfer aids


Non-wearable transfer aids use robot technologies and provide powered assistance to the caregiver in lifting motions. The following are key considerations in the development of non-wearable transfer aids.

  • Operational by one person in transferring the care-receiver.
  • Usable in transferring the person between the bed and the wheelchair.
  • Provide full or partial powered assistance to the caregiver.
  • Require no additional work for the installation, such as building a foundation for the device.
  • Exclude hanging-type transfer lifts from this category.
