3 reviews for Cricket Transfer and Transport Aid

  1. Sarah Poynter. Advanced Physiotherapist, Neurosciences Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust

    We purchased this transfer aid for our neurosurgical and neuro rehab patients and it has not been out of use. The Cricket has enabled 2 of our TBI patients to complete standing transfers with assistance of their parents safely on the ward about 2 weeks earlier than we would have been able to without the Cricket. This allowed them to make significant progress in their goals for ADL’s and toileting in this period. The Cricket has also been enthusiastically welcomed by our nursing colleagues as a safe and reliable aid to their management of the patients.

  2. Barbara

    It’s an absolute godsend! My mother hated the hoist she was using before. The Cricket is so much easier for everyone, and my mother is so much happier now

  3. Judith Craig, Moving and Handling Practitioner (Partnerships), CHP Offices Stobhill Hospital

    We like the independence it can still promote in clients through their need to actively participate in sit to stand.
