Transfer aids get older too. Conduct regular checks to ensure that they are safe and in perfect working order! An aid that does not meet the required demands must be removed from service immediately.

Visual inspection

Ensure that the material and the seams are not damaged. Verify that the material is not worn or bleached.

Mechanical load or stress

Apply pressure to the buckles and handles and verify that they will not open or break under heavy loads.

Stability test

Carefully bend the slab to verify that it is elastic but still feels firm and solid.

Friction test

Low friction - Ensure that the surface is smooth and slides effortlessly. Compare with a new product. 
High friction - Ensure that the surface is rough and prevents the transfer aid from moving. Compare with a new product.
