Description

 
The SafetySure Pivot Disc is designed for assisted or unassisted transfers by individuals with limited or no ability to pivot. Individuals with upper body strength can use the Pivot Disc to accomplish independent transfers.

Features

  • Great caregiver assistance tool
  • Aids in transfers between the bed, wheelchair or toilet
  • Makes transfers easier and reduces caregiver back strain
  • Placement of the Pivot Disc

  • The SST Pivot Disc is placed on the floor with the label facing downwards. The individual's feet are positioned completely on the disc to facilitate a smooth transfer and reduce back strain on both the individual and caregiver. The handle of the Pivot Disc should be place facing the individual to prevent interfering with the caregivers feet. The caregiver should place one foot on the Pivot Disc to safely monitor and control the transfer. After using the Pivot Disc, it should be immediately removed from the floor.
  • Advantages of the SST Pivot Disc

  • Because of the lightweight and convenient grip handle, the SST Pivot Disc is easy to use and carry. The Pivot Disc is made of high quality polymer plates for ease of motion. The Pivot Disc is also equiped with anti-glide tapes on both sides to prevent slipping on the floor or when the individual is standing on the Pivot Disc.
  • Transfers between a chair and a wheelchair

  • The SST Pivot Disc is "locked" in place when the caregiver places their heel comfortably on the floor and the rest of their foot on the plate between the feet of the individual to be transferred (fig 2). In order to make the transfer as easy as possible, the individual being transferred should wear an SST Transfer Belt. The handles on the Transfer Belt provides a solid grip for the caregiver.
  • Transfers between a wheelchair and a toilet

  • Proper use of the SST Pivot Disc is this situation is idential to transfer between a chair and wheelchair. However, it is safer and easier with two cargivers, each wearing a SST Transfer Belt. As shown in figure 1, the caregiver(s) can use their free hand to help undress the indiviudal before placing him/her on the toilet.

  • Transfers between a Bed and Wheelchair

  • Before moving an individual from a bed to a wheelchair, make sure that the wheelchair is positioned as close to the bed as possible, with the wheels locked. For better control and safety, always have the individual wear a SST Transfer Belt (fig. 2)

    Great product February 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Gail Palmer from Sturbridge, MA United States  
    Caregivers have been really pleased with how this 13" disc works with my 94 year old mother. She is completely non weight bearing on her left leg and they have easily transferred her from wheelchair to shower chair with this item. We would recommend it to anyone.

    As advertised June 27, 2013
    Reviewer: Kevin Carmody from New Liskeard, ON Canada  
    A little harder to turn than I expected but you also wouldn't want it to turn too easy for safety.

    disappointed January 28, 2013
    Reviewer: Rosalinda Wilson from Vinton, IA United States  
    we started with a 13" disc, it worked but we thought 15" would be better as it would allow mom to stand with feet wider apart. However, the 15" does not pivot very well. It is as if the wider plane puts pressure further away from the pivot point and therefore makes it more difficult to spin.  Hope this helps.
