creating independence

The Buffalo 150 is a easy-glide synthetic fibre transfer board for. It is designed to be easily transportable, in fact it is only 4 millimetres thick and has a handle hole. 

The Buffalo 150 board is brightly coloured and has a double notch for greater stability and to ensure maximum safety during transfer. The composite fibre ensures high resistance and avoids harmful chipping of the surface which occurs over time with other materials. EC certified, class I medical device, made in Italy and is a registered design.

The Buffalo 150 board is an aid characterised by flexibility and versatility of use. It can be easily used for small transfers in any indoor environment, for example in the bedroom, living room, kitchen or bathroom; for moving from the wheelchair to the couch, bed, chair or toilet (and vice versa).
Outdoors the board, which can be easily transported thanks to its compact dimensions and light weight, is used for movements in cars (getting into and out of the vehicle) or on benches, chairs or seats in public places.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS

•     Why is it so thin? Because it has to pass under the buttocks/legs of the user. And some users are not able to lift those parts of their body more than a few cm or mm. 

•     Why is it so smooth/slippery? Because in this way the user can slide easily from one end to the other. 

•     Why is it slightly flexible? Because the user might have to use it to move between two objects at a different height (for example from toilet to wheelchair, bed to chair, wheelchair to car) and this offers better comfort.

•     Why is it shaped like a banana? Because this allows a dual support (where the user transfer begins and where it ends) and also allows a semi-circular movement.


•     Why is there no grip on the bottom? Because many users prefer to have a sliding aid that they can slip out easily when the transfer is finished and 
the board is under their buttocks/legs. We have now introduced the Buffalo 150 Grip which has 2 grips on the base for those users who prefer some grip or protection when transferring onto certain materials.

•     Why the handle? To allow some users (tetraplegics or people with generally reduced strength) to manoeuvre it easily.


•     Why the double notch? To get closer to chair armrests and wheelchairs and to 'lock' onto them for more stability/security.


•     Why is it made of plastic and not wood like the “old style” boards? Because the old ones are heavy and dangerous. Many transfer board users do not have sensitivity on their skin and wooden boards often have chips and nicks on the surface, which are harmful and can cut any exposed skin.
