Patient Transfer Scale
The Patient Transfer Scale is designed to address the needs of patients admitted to hospital who are either too sick to stand on scales or are immobile. Obtaining an accurate patient weight is critical for medication dosage, and the scale combines a standard patient transfer board with a class III approved weighing scale, . enabling medication to be administered quickly for conditions like stroke and sepsis.
The product was an idea of Gillian Taylor, an Emergency Department Nurse at NHS Lanarkshire. It was developed with InnoScot Health and is manufactured by Marsdens.
