What sizes are available for the Premium Transfer Systems?

- BeasyGlyder: 32” – used to curve around wheelchairs with non-removable armrests.
- BeasyTrans: 40” – used for bariatric or longer transfers (wheelchair to car, etc.)
What alternatives are there to the Premium Transfer Systems?
- Wood and Plastic transfer boards are less expensive, but do not provide a “No Lift” option, requiring the care giver to both lift and drag the person across the surface.
- Hydraulic Lifts are far more expensive, much more time consuming, and don’t offer a “portability factor”.

How do I clean my transfer board(s)?
On the back of the board you will see a track guard. This is held on by 4 small pins. These pins can easily be popped off with a flat head screw driver and a light tap with a hammer. There is a nut that holds the seat on. This can be screwed off to remove the seat and glide sheet. Sanitize as needed and replace the seat, glide sheet and pins in the track guard. Boards should be lightly lubricated with frequent use by lightly spraying the top of the board (not the seat), and rubbing well with a soft cloth. You can purchase Beasy clear lubricant spray, or use a cooking type spray (we do not guarantee that cooking spray will not stain clothing).
To Lubricate the Board:
If you have taken the board apart to clean it, you can put a light amount of lubricant spray on the bottom of the glide sheet that sits closest to the board. OR, if you do not wish to take the board apart, on the front of the board you will see an open line (groove) in the middle of the board that the rotating seat follows. Apply a light amount of spray around that line and rub well with a clean, soft cloth.
When putting the seat back on, remember to lightly finger tighten the nut and then loosen the nut just enough so that the seat slides easily. The nut should never be tight.
What Insurance/Medicare Reimbursement options are available?
Most Beasy Dealers do not submit to insurance for you. You can call us, and we will give you contact information for the companies we know that will offer this service. Most patients will need to submit it on their own to their insurance.
Because we do not have a HCPC code, submit your claim to your insurance and ask them to use code: E1399, which is a miscellaneous medical equipment code. When submitting, it is important that you include a doctor’s prescription for the board, stating why the gliding, rotating seat is needed for your medical needs.
Example: This patient has easily torn skin from sliding across standard transfer boards. The gliding seat on the Beasy transfer system allows them to transfer with no friction on the skin.

This warranty covers repair and/or replacement. The decision to repair or replace will be at the sole discretion of BeasyTrans Systems, Inc.
How much training is needed to be able to use the boards easily and safely?
As with most anything, achieving the necessary expertise in using a device depends on the person(s) ability to master the basics, practice for a given situation, the environment, and certainly the mobility of the patient.
Each patient’s medical needs are different, and using a Beasy transfer system will take you some time to learn how it will work for you.
