The BlueBoard is the most effective and simple patient movement system available. Whereas the PAT slide requires a person to slide across the surface of the PAT slide, the BlueBoard allows the body to roll across its surface. It is in use throughout a growing number of European hospital mortuaries (including all German hospitals and an growing number of UK hospitals including mortuaries) and provides significant manual handling benefits.
The rolling transfer provided by BlueBoard in moving the deceased is proven to be effective, simple, safe and gentle, not only for the deceased but also for the staff. Designed to reduce the risks involved in manual handling and capable of handling up to 200kg (300kg with disposable cover). The removable material simply spins round the board allowing patients to be slid with ease from trolleys to tables etc.
