Mobile air transfer system is the system used in hospitals and other medical centers that helps to reduce patient handling injury. The system provides patients with simple and comfortable transfer experience along with significantly reducing the cumulative handling effect of thousands of pounds of patients’ weight while routine transfers. To ensure the safety of hundreds of millions of people suffering from health care associated infections and abnormalities mobile air transfer system are designed. The system uses cushion of air to move patients laterally from one place to another without lifting and significantly less pulling. The system is designed for patients, which enables nurses and doctors to comfortably transfer patients during the period of the hospital stay. The mobile air transfer systems includes head & foot indicator that promotes proper patient placement and is compatible to use in MRI, CT scan, X-rays and ultrasound imaging. Mobile air transfer system are made capable of lifting different weights up to 1000 lb and is skin friendly and breathable. Mobile air transfer systems uses a dual inflation, patent pending method that safely stabilizes and cradles the patient before rising on cushion of air, eventually providing an easier and effective patient transfer.
Patient transferring is one of the most common tasks that leads to injury. The mobile air transfer system is anticipated to experience an upsurge in the forecast period owing to the multiple advantageous features offered by the system. Over the course of one year, around 35,000 nurse suffer from musculoskeletal injury due to patient transfer. This can also be considered as one of the major driver for the mobile air transfer system market over the globe. The focus of various organizations to reduce the physical requirement of high risk healthcare recipient transfer, mobilization, repositioning or other applicable task through administrative controls, engineering and safe work practices is propelling the overall market for mobile air transfer system globally. The less popularity of the technique and improper cost management to ensure patient safety by numerous organizations are the factors restraining the growth of mobile air transfer market globally.
