Abstract

A laboratory and on-the-field study was conducted to compare Floor-Based (FB) and Ceiling-Based (CB) patients transfer devices. Pushing and pulling forces were measured by means of computer assisted dynamometer. EMG signals were measured. Standardized patient transfers were setup in the room (bed-chair-door-return). FB devices showed pushing and pulling forces higher than CB ones. CB paths were the smoothest and EMG data related to upper arms and trunk muscles showed stable lower loads for CB. The study suggests that CB patient transfer devices reduced the load. CBs seem the best tools for patient handling.
