Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Mobility Transfer Systems, Incorporated, to offer their SafetySure® Super Slide patient transfer device to a wider consumer market. As the predominant leader in providing unique and innovative medical products that help improve the quality of life for people who are elderly or physically challenged, Mobility Transfer Systems (MTS) supplies these products to hospitals, doctors, therapy clinics, businesses and individuals throughout the United States. They develop, design and manufacture an entire line of bed mobility products, as well as the SafetySure™ product line, and offer a large selection of high quality bed rails, mobility aids, commodes, bath safety products, fall prevention devices, and many other varied home healthcare products that promote independence and easier daily living.
Combining the best features of a transfer gurney and a transfer slide, the SafetySure® Super Slide offers an innovative transfer solution for both the patient and the caregiver in one simple device. Measuring 20 inches wide by 48 inches long, the transfer gurney offers a plastic insert for added protection while transferring a patient from one surface to another. The 40 inch wide by 60 inch long transfer slide is securely attached to the gurney with two Velcro® strips, and the frictionless inner surface of the slide allows for easier transfer of the patient. This is a highly preferable transfer method as clinical studies have proven that a greater than 40% reduction in pull force is required when using a combination of a mobility sheet and transfer slide, as opposed to a standard draw sheet transfer. Reducing pull force means less opportunity of injury to the caregiver, which translates to a safer method of transfer for the patient, as well.
The SafetySure® Super Slide from MTS has a 400 pound weight capacity, is completely machine washable, and has the added benefit of both the gurney and the slide being able to be used separately if desired. “We are delighted to introduce the SafetySure® Super Slide from Mobility Transfer Systems to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This innovative transfer solution offers easier and safer transfers for both the patient and the caregiver, without having to buy two separate products. We are proud to offer this, and other great transfer and mobility solutions from MTS to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
