Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

Materials are available to occupational therapy practitioners that can reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury during patient handling. This study examined the SallyTube and the Smooth Mover transfer board, which both reduced the hand forces involved with a lateral patient transfer compared with a cotton sheet.
