Lifting and Transfer

Introduction

Through three case illustration of elders with different physical conditions in these videos, domestic and institutional carers can learn the basic principles of lifting and transfer. The elders in the 3 cases are as follow:
1. slightly weak, needs one carer to assist
2. weak on one side of the body, needs mild assistance
3. overall weak, needs two carers to assist

For these 3 cases, our physiotherapist will explain and demonstrate the principles and techniques of lifting and transfer in detail. Our occupational therapist will explain how to select suitable furniture and assistive devices for daily living and for lifting and transfer.

It is hoped that the video can raise the awareness to home environment for both carers and elders so as to create a barrier free living environment.

In case of query, please consult a health professional.
