The Easy Pivot Transfer Machines are mechanical transfer lifts that duplicate commonly used standing pivot maneuver used for assisted transfers and eliminates need for weight support by an assistant. The user's legs are positioned against a padded knee retainer and the user leans over a cushioned chest pad. The assistant secures leg and shoulder straps and then pulls lever handle up to lift person to the transfer position. The user's feet and knees are stabilized as torso is raised to lift the body. The user is secured in the device while being lowered to new surface. No slings are required. When the transfer is complete, the assistant releases knee pad and detaches leg and shoulder straps. These devices can be used with a chair, a wheelchair, a sofa, a bed, or a commode. FRAME: Welded steel frame with enamel finish that can be disassembled for transport. The frame is available with thumb screw height adjustment intended for home use with one person or with quick crank adjustment intended for multiple use in institutions. Models designated by /DR are "deep reach" frame models designed to accommodate users of the Pride Jazzy, Permobil (see separate entries) and similar wheelchairs. Because these wheelchairs feature recessed footplates, the /DR models feature extended bases to straddle the chair and cantilevered columns to properly position the kneepad. OPTIONS: An Arm Holder cuff is available to maintain proper arm position during transfers. DIMENSIONS: Models EP-100 and EP-200 are 29 inches wide; model EP-300 is 34 inches wide.
