The transfer lift transit allows very easy transfer by supporting the patient just below the shoulders. The patient is supported convenient and safe under the shoulders with padded and ergonomically shaped shoulder supports. No interfering straps or slings, which may handicap the removing of clothes, are required. By operating a hand switch, the care-dependent person is gently lifted and placed safely back at a different location. Transit can also be used with wide wheelchairs or seats by using the electrically-operated spreading of the chassis. The transfer procedure is very comfortable for the patient.
