PC transfers

notes from chapter 7

generalizability goal of transfer training, means some skills learned for 1 transfer can be used for other transfers
physical therapists evaluate the results of the examination which include... strength, ROM, pain, cognitive ability, and movement dysfunction, to select an appropriate method of transfer that can be performed in a consistent, safe, and efficient manner.
independent transfers are those transfers in which a patient consistently performs all aspects of the transfer, including setup, in a safe manner and without assistance by additional clinicians
assisted transfers are those transfers in which a patient participates actively and requires assistance by additional clinicians. including by not limited to, two person lift, sliding board transfer, squat pivot and assisted standing pivot transfer
dependent transfers are those in which patient does not participate actively, or participates only minimally, and additional clinicians perform all aspects of the transfer. ex. sliding transfer from cart to rx table, 3-person carry, dependent standing pivot transfer & hoyer
levels of assistance can be stated as stand-by (supervision), close guarding, contact guarding, minimal, moderate, and maximum assistance
stand-by assistance pt can usually perform the activity without assist by additional clinician, but do not do so consistently
close guarding pt who can usually perform the activity w/o assistance by have a greater likelihood for needing physical assist, PTA stays close
contact guarding PTA stays close and keeps a hand on pt
