Thanks to modern advancements in the fields of medical health and technology, the world’s elderly population continues to grow. As a result, there is an increase in seniors who are in need of medical care, whether it is home-based, through a residential living facility, or in a hospital.

One of the most scrutinized and regulated areas of policy, established by Western government officials, medical insurance companies and healthcare providers for elderly patients and their caregivers, involves the safe transfer of patients to and from bed.
