Pressure plate for easy transfers

Wooden plate evens out pressure and facilitates moves from soft surfaces for people with disabilities

The pressure plate is a round sheet of plywood the size of a dish. Next to the middle of the plate is a hole through which the user's hand is inserted and to hold on to the plate.

Authors comments
The plate provides a good surface for pressure. It does not hurt the user's fingers since a soft surface such as the bed or couch is used. The plate was a good assistive device for Glenn when he was newly injured. He no longer needs it.
