Transfer Techniques using the Ergotrans Harness
Secure the belt around the waist – with the silver adjustable straps held out to the sides. Then slip the seat section under the thighs – with handles down and buckles towards patients waist.
Connect all buckles together while matching strap colors – silver to silver, black to black. Make sure all adjustable straps are secured tightly before any transfer!
Buckle belt to seat at sides and tighten.
Gently rock the patient forward by lifting from side to side using the positioning straps. Rocking and lifting helps to pull the patient forward prior to transfer, and also helps to position the seat properly under the patients' legs.
Position the patients' torso against your side – Protect yourself by keeping your back straight: bend your knees and lean forward from the hips.
Lift with your legs!
