EZ Care Chair

A breakthrough in patient

A breakthrough in patient mobility.

Minimally invasive transfer, toileting,
and showering for immobile patients.


A “Swiss Army Knife” for Patient Care
EZ Care Chair

The EZ Care ChairTM is a no-lift mobile chair and transfer device. It transfers and transports dependent patients with minimal caregiver-patient interaction to reduce Covid-19 viral transmission. It is not yet available for purchase. The system provides a cost effective way for a single caregiver to transfer a patient from the bed. The chair makes showering and toileting, the two most challenging and labor-intensive activities of daily living (ADLs), safer and faster which drastically reduces nursing costs while also reducing Covid-19 cross infection.

Please visit the EZCareChair YouTube channel for videos on transfer, showering, toileting, and changing adult briefs.

The Problem

Medicaid cost increases are unsustainable because of the high cost of caring for dependent patients. The annual $250B spent on dementia will double by 2030 (alz.org). Dementia has no treatment. These costs arise from simple daily care-taking activities which are inefficient and hazardous when performing Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The result is wasted nursing resources, caregiver injury and burnout, patient falls, and the forced admission of patients into costly nursing homes. The high cost of showering, toileting, transfer, and mobility challenges both caregivers and institutions, and will become a full-blown crisis as Medicaid dementia costs double in the next decade.

Recently Covid-19 cross infection presents a new challenge to caregivers and wheelchair patients. Common wheelchair transfer methods are high-contact spreading infection between caregivers and patients.The EZCareChair permits Touchless patient transfer and mobility reducing the spread of the virus.

A safe and efficient option.

The Solution

The EZ Care Chair offers a safe and efficient option for transfer and mobility. Now, patient transfer, showering, and toileting are manageable tasks for a single caregiver. The EZ Care Chair method includes the following steps:

  1. Create stretcher under patient
  2. Transfer laterally
  3. Convert stretcher to mobile chair
  4. Access ADL’s– see videos of caregiver-assisted and self-toileting options
