Patient Transfer Device

Patient Transfer Device

Improved patient transfer device for moving mobility-limited patients; for example, from a bed to a chair, a wheelchair to a shower chair, etc. The device is more maneuverable and has a higher weight capacity than current market devices. This project uses both vehicle mount and panel mount AxCent™ servo drives.
