Manual Handling Aids
The BlueBoard is a patient movement system that is used in European hospital mortuaries. It is the most effective and simple patient movement system available. Unlike the PAT slide, which requires a person to slide across the surface of the slide, the BlueBoard allows the body to roll across its surface.
The rolling transfer is proven to be effective, simple, safe and gentle for the deceased and staff. The BlueBoard is designed to reduce the risks involved in manual handling and is capable of handling up to 200kg (300kg with disposable cover), the removable material simply spins around the board allowing patients to be slid with ease from trolley to table.
Benefits of the BlueBoard
- Can be used anywhere where the deceased require moving - hospitals, care homes, ambulances and funeral directors
- Fitted with a removable, washable cover and can be used with disposable covers to assist in infection control
- Flexible, lightweight and easy to use
- Easy to store
Recovery Cloth XL
The recovery cloth is constructed of easy-sliding material to reduce manual handling problems and is fitted with eight reinforced handgrips and three safety belts.
This allows for the safe and easy recovery of the deceased in rough terrain or narrow stairways, as well as the transfer of obese deceased with a carrying capacity of up to 400 kg.
A Recovery Belt is an essential tool for recovering the deceased, particularly when they are in hard-to-reach areas. For example, if the deceased are in the bathtub, in the car, or behind an object, the Recovery Belt allows the user to keep their back straighter and reduces manual handling issues.
Up to 150kg can be carried per belt, and multiple belts can be used to increase the weight capacity.
