The Slide Board – Aero Transfer is used to slide to and from a wheelchair to an aeroplane seat.
This Poly material will bend, but will not break. It is made from a strong, self lubricating material. The outer surface may mark easily and a new board may look second hand when new, but the advantages of using this material outweigh the disadvantages.
Transferring Tip: If the patient crosses their legs, it is easier to place the slide board under the raised leg.
