    Square Amputee Transfer Board

    Our square transfer board is designed for those who would like the security of extended handles. Must be used with removable wheelchair armrests.
    *

    The WadeBoard (patented) was designed for easy transfer from the bed to a wheelchair or from the wheelchair to another chair like a recliner or couch. The board should not be used on sharp inclines to avoid losing control while transferring. Use the following steps to successfully transfer:

    Transferring a double amputee from the bed to a wheelchair:

    1. Have the individual sit up in bed with a Gait Belt. Place the wheelchair next to the bed with the front of the wheelchair flat against the side of the bed with as little gap as possible. The individual should be approximately 20 inches from the wheelchair. Lock the wheels on the wheelchair.

    2. Place the narrow end of the WadeBoard on the seat to the wheelchair approximately covering 75% of the seat (figure1.1 ). The end of the WadeBoard with the handles should be on the bed next to the individual. Slide the end of the WadeBoard with the handles under the individual slightly and then ensure the board is flat on both surfaces.

    3. With the individual facing the wheelchair, have them hold both handles and gently slide the individual across the WadeBoard onto the wheelchair (figure1.2 ). Use the wheelchair handles as appropriate then have them turn around on the wheelchair (figure1.3 ). 

    4. Gently slide the board out from under the individual.

    Transferring a single amputee or a lame individual from the bed to a wheelchair:

    1. Have the individual sit up in bed with a Gait Belt. Place the wheelchair next to the bed with the front of the wheelchair flat against the side of the bed with as little gap as possible. The individual should be approximately 20 inches from the wheelchair. Lock the wheels on the wheelchair.

    2. Place the narrow end of the WadeBoard on the seat to the wheelchair approximately covering 75% of the seat (figure 2.1 ). The end of the WadeBoard with the handles should be on the bed next to the individual. Slide the end of the WadeBoard with the handles under the individual slightly and then ensure the board is flat on both surfaces.

    3. With the individual facing away from the wheelchair, have them hold both handles and gently slide backwards across the WadeBoard onto the wheelchair (figure 2.2 ). Use the wheelchair handles as appropriate.

    4. Gently slide the board out from under the individual.
