Description

Description: 

The National Physical Practice Guidelines are depicted in a series of illustrated posters which include ‘tips and tricks’. The Guidelines specify when a certain action, for example the transfer of a client or putting on support stockings, becomes too heavy and indicate which solution is required and which type of (lifting) device must be used.  The posters depict the best ways to transfer patients, put on support stockings and other frequently done tasks.
