Download the AirPal whitepaper: An evaluation of lateral patient transfer devices; caregiver ergonomics
The lifting and transferring of patients play a pivotal role in caregiver’s health and musculoskeletal injury risk, which can impact turnover and lead to staffing shortages. This risk of injury has increased with the rising number of plus size patients seeking healthcare.
In an ergonomic testing of 3 different air-assisted solutions, AirPal received the highest (best) rating of all systems by the users for performance and comfort and was ranked highest (most preferred) overall. The AirPal system was also rated as requiring the lowest level of physical exertion to use (most favorable) for a majority of body parts.
