Hospital Bed Transfer

Patient Transfer System

The goals of this project are to reconstruct and improve the comfort of a patient transfer assist device. The patient transfer assist device should efficiently transfer patient from bed to bed, bed to stretcher, and stretcher to stretcher as well as keeping the same strain that the current system provide, or reducing the strain on the caregiver. There are many patient transfer assist devices available on the market today, including transfer board, slide sheets, roller sheets, transfer belt, and roller boards. However, most of these devices cause pain to patients who have pressure sores. To target this issue, we will redesign the roller board with fluidic cylindrical tubes, instead of metal roller. This system will replace the current roller board, as well as fully satisfy the patient and the caregiver by efficiently and comfortably transferring the patients.
