Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Occupational therapy practitioners are at high risk for musculoskeletal injuries. One way to reduce this risk is to choose friction-reducing devices when handling patients. In this study, friction-reducing draw sheets decreased the force required to slide a patient up in bed compared with a cotton sheet.
