The composite outer layer of the UltraSlick® produces a constant slick surface that requires no waxing and never needs refinishing. This greatly aids ease of transfer for those to require assistance and are not able to transfer themselves due to lack of upper arm strength.
The unique plastic surface over layers of select hardwood increase strength much like the carbon fiber skin over a foam core in modern aircraft wings, so the board is thin (7/16") and very lightweight. A lacquered finish on the bottom allows for easy placement of board, while reducing board movement during transfers.
Boards available in 18", 24", 27" and 30" lengths; with or without hand holes. (three hand holes are possible to aid high Quads transfer).
- Technologically advanced composite surface dramatically reduces effort required to transfer
- Provide maximum strength with minimum weight.
- Very light weight and maneuverable
"Using this board, we have been able to teach high Quads to transfer independently. Prior to using the UltraSlick®, these patients required help to transfer." - Kathy Dunn, rehabilitation clinical specialist.
"The UltraSlick® is also helpful in wet transfers." - Kathy Roy, Director of Spinal Cord Physical Therapy, VAMC San Diego.
