Patient transfer is a process of transporting a patient from one place to another, by using patient lifts, stretcher trolleys, transfer chairs and other equipment. It can be used when transporting unconscious, weak patients and those who can not walk on their own around health care facility.

Generally, mobility aid is a device designed to help in a walking process (when a patient can walk but has difficulties doing it) or to improve the mobility of people with mobility impairment (when a patient cannot walk by himself). Manufacturers provide various mobility aid devices, which can make the moving process for injured patients much easier, for example, for low impairment there are walking sticks and crutches, for more severe injuries there are walkers and rollators. If the patient has a more severe disability, the mobility can be raised with the help of scooters or most common device - manual or electric wheelchairs. Mobility aids can be used temporarily or constantly. Cases, when mobility aids can be used constantly are mostly when the patient has long-term untreatable musculoskeletal or nervous system disorders. Other cases, when mobility devices can be used temporarily are when the patient needs time to recover from trauma or disease to regain his mobility.

There are some benefits of patient transfer and mobility aid devices:

1) Patient’s balance is improved (additional support and the centre of gravity positioning is wider)

2) Reduced threats of lower-limb trauma 

3) Patient’s movements are generated 

Main types of mobility aids:

• Crutches. Have two connections with the arm - at the hand and at the elbow, which allows exerting better loads.

• Cane. The simplest, but a mostly used device. It is held in the hand and the loads are transmitted through a shaft.

• Canes, crutches, and forearm crutch combination. These devices are designed to support the body weight with bands that encircle the upper arms.

• Walkers. Also known as rollators, have freestanding metal framework, that places the user in front of them and gives a possible stability.

• Walker cane hybrid. It has two legs, that provide lateral support. It can be used with two hands or adjusted to be used only with one hand and is placed in front of the user.
