MedSelfEd Patient Education: Care Task Slide 17 of 20 - Using a Transfer Belt
PatientPad Content Review
Sunday, May 31, 2020


When the patient reaches the chair, use an underhand grasp on the belt from the front with one hand on each side of the buckle to support the patient. Have the patient pivot until her calves touch the front of the chair. The patient then bends her knees, grasps the arms of the chair with both hands and slowly sits down as you support him. The procedure is reversed to have the patient get back to bed.
