Place person being transferred on the Beasy board seat.

Leave the leading edge of the Beasy seat visible. With a larger individual, it may be helpful to place a towel over the seat and gathering in caregiver’s hands to help support excess tissue.

 


DO NOT LIFT the person being transferred.

The BeasyTrans© System is designed to work with all of the person’s weight on the seat. This product is designed exclusively to protect the caregiver’s back from lifting injuries and the patient from brachial plexus type injuries.


PRACTICE!!!

The Beasy board is worth the practice. Once you understand the unique feel and motion of a "NO LIFT" sliding transfer, it take a little time to get familiar with the proper techniques and the feel of a Beasy boards.


Bring the patient to a sitting position on the edge of the bed.

Encourage the patient to help this this action whenever possible. Place the transfer belt around the lower trunk of the patient.

Remove the arm and foot rests closest to the transfer position.

Swing away the other foot rest.


Position the wheel chair for the most level transfer position possible.

Use a cushion or two, if necessary to help level the transfer. Lock the wheel chair in place. With a transfer involving an incline, be sure to glide seat in one continuous motion to the end of the board.


Lean the patient as far as possible to the opposite side of the transfer board.

Carefully lift the lead leg and cross it over the trailing leg. This motion will make it easier to place the seat under the patient.

 


Secure the seat to keep it from moving.

When placing the seat under the patient, hold the thumb of the seat or place a hand behind the seat to keep it from moving.


Always make sure that you can see the edge of the Beasy seat prior to transfer.

Be sure you can see the edge of the seat even with larger patients. Seat should NOT be totally under the patient. This means part of the buttocks will be off the trailing side of the seat. THIS IS AS IT SHOULD BE! Lift this part of the buttocks slightly during the transfer.

Place your arms around the patient and grasp the transfer belt from behind.

Lean the patient slightly toward you, almost like giving them a little "hug."

 


BE SURE THE TRANSFER BELT IS AROUND THE LOWER PART OF THE TRUNK OF THE BODY!

DON'T LIFT! LEAVE THE WEIGHT ON THE BEASY BOARD! Glide patient slowly across the Beasy Board. If the chair has been positioned properly, the patient will end with their back against the back of the wheel chair, the way it should be.
