Hard pivot disc or turning disc is used on the floor or on surfaces where a soft disc would slide. Can be used either for assistance with a standing transfer or un-assisted with a seated transfer. Ideal for homecare, this is an incredibly useful aid especially when used in connection with other transfer aids (patient belts, slide sheets, and transfer boards), aiding caregiver and end user alike. Manufactured using a layer of low fiction material with a central pivot for ease of rotation and non-slip material affixed to the base of the disc.
Used to assist a transfer from a number of scenarios for either those who can stand/bear their body weight but are unable to rotate, pivot or twist their hips or used with feet on the disc whilst sitting to help with the transfer from bed to seat or chair to wheelchair by using the arms to turn the body.
