Based on his own experience at home with his paralyzed grandmother with her aunt as a caregiver, Rajiv Surya has designed Care S Easy Transfer Wheelchair. This wheelchair is specially designed to reduce the burden level of caregiver, it can be both physically and emotionally, it also helps the patient to not feel as if they are a burden.
The task when transferring patients from bed to wheelchair and vice versa can be the most daunting task for caregivers, but this has to be done on daily basis for quadriplegics patient care at home. By redesigning a wheelchair with integrated sliding scoop stretcher that folds and transforms into a seating platform, the transferring process can be done easier.
Care S Easy Transfer Wheelchair by Rajiv Surya is designed with careful consideration of physical strain that caregivers have to endure, it also considers the condition of the patient.
How it works?
A caregiver can place this wheelchair at the side of the bed for lateral transfer and lock the two rear wheels, then place two parts of the scoop stretcher from either sides of patient using a small tilt, there’s no need to lift the patient, and lock the parts. Before transferring process begins, put down the back handle and armrests of Care S Easy Transfer Wheelchair, then adjust the platform level to the same level as the bed using foot assisted scissor lift. Now a caregiver can pull out the slider from wheelchair platform and slide it inside the groove of the stretcher seat to snap lock it. Place belts around the patient and slide the stretcher onto the platform of the wheelchair to fold and transport them.
