Hence, there are various products available to perform lateral transfer of patients easily such as draw sheets, slide sheets, transfer belts, transfer/slide boards, turning disks, etc. These products can be used according to the condition of the patient.

However, the cost of these patient transfer devices is the biggest concern.
