Immedia Butterfly

A long, wide and stable transfer board with the GlideWing for additional slide function

The Butterfly is a long, wide, stable transfer board intended to bridge longer gaps when performing seated transfers. The board can be used when transferring between bed and wheelchair, shower chair/toilet, or in and out of the car.

Excellent stability
The cutouts for positioning close to the wheel of a wheelchair and the non-slip pads on the underside provide excellent stability, reducing the risk of unwanted movement or sliding during transfers. The board's upper surface has very low friction, allowing users to transfer independently or with assistance.

Immedia Butterfly GlideWing
The Butterfly can be used with the special Butterfly GlideWing, for additional slide function. The GlideWing slides along the board with even lower friction and is recommended when the transfer involves bare skin, such as to and from a shower chair or toilet.

Utilize this algorithm alongside the user manual for the relevant glide board to determine the appropriate choice for the user. It is important that the glide board has been tested with the individual user and for the intended transfer situation.
The algorithm in the selector acts as a tool to provide helpful direction in the selection of glide boards related to the intended use. Results should only be regarded as a principal guideline and do not substitute the need for individual assessments performed by competent carers for each individual user/patient.
