    I have also progressed to needing a full transfer. After an evaluation I now use the Rifton TRAM, much easier and quicker then a hoyer sling lift.

    Caregivers and transfers

    I have caregivers that come in to help me with exercises and toileting. They've usually been able to transfer me using a gait belt, but as I've progressed from a pivot transfer to a full transfer, it's become much harder. I have a Hoyer lift in case I end up on the floor and no one else is here to help lift me (my husband is often here to help). I'd prefer not having to use the Hoyer for every transfer because it takes so long to get it under me in my lift chair and transport me back to my bed to use my commode and then do my stretches on the bed. I was given a sit to stand machine but it hasn't worked for me. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
