                           THE TRANSFER SEAT

Revolutionizing the daily routine for many people, the Transfer Seat
provides ultimate peace of mind for anyone who needs assistance in
mobility.  With its light-weight and portability, it is perfect for travel.

The transfer seat cradles the body comfortably & securely, and can be laid
flat so a person may be rolled onto it, and then lifted upright.  Designed
for two people lifting, a person's body weight is divided in half, so that
a safer, more secure transfer is accomplished, while reducing the fear of
being moved.

The Transfer Seat is made of tough, pliable, and waterproof polyethylene
plastic inner liner, with padded, pleated, waterproof cushion vinyl
top-side and choice of safety yellow or camouflage canvas on the outside.

The Transfer Seat folds to a compact 12.5" X 17.5" X 2" size for easy
storage.  It's sturdy, built-to-last construction provides reliable
performance, and at only 2 lbs. is easily portable.
