Sliding board with extra anti-slip material

Authors comments
Especially during steep transfers upwards it is important for the board to sit in place just at the edge. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to put the board in place under the body. The user's solution is to lift up one leg and place the board on the cushion instead of pushing it in(see photos 1 and 2).
