The Rollboard is a lateral transfer board that helps reduce the forces required to laterally transfer patients, helping reduce the strain on nursing staff – especially in areas where lateral transfers are carried out frequently.
The gold standard for lateral transfers (in terms of reducing strain) has been air assisted transfer. But this is still cost prohibitive and takes a lot of time to train staff sufficiently. Slide sheets and transfer sheets can lead to increased forces on the staff carrying out the transfer.
By comparison, Lateral Roll boards are easy to train staff on and implement, and they greatly reduce the forces required to move a patient.
