    Key Points for Body Mechanics During Transfers. Use proper body mechanics The preferred position for assisting during depression or sliding board transfers is to kneel, using a pillow or towel roll under the knee for comfort. Keep your back straight throughout the transfer to avoid bending or straining your back. •With practice, using the principle of body mechanics, the nurse will move smoothly and surely, minimizing personal strain, conserving energy, and enhancing the safety, comfort, and confidence of the patients •Practiced incorrectly, any of these has the potential to cause strain, fatigue, or injury to the nurse or patient.

    a specific manual patient handling task will create unacceptably high forces inside the body and whether a manual lift is “safe” or not. Body mechanics, on the other hand, is a belief that reliance on “correct” body positions or “body movements” will somehow provide protection from the force associated with lifting and moving patients. Comfortable positioning during mat exercises, modality application, and manual techniques is essential for a patient-centered approach to treatment. Therapists must actively seek feedback from patients and show a willingness to adapt an exercise or other treatment modalities based on the positioning needs of the patient.

    In this lesson, you learned that body mechanics are the movements of bones and skeletal muscles to change position and posture. Body mechanics involves moving, positioning, and ambulation of patients.

Body Mechanics Body mechanics involves the coordinated effort of muscles, bones, and the nervous system to maintain balance, posture, and alignment during moving, transferring, and positioning patients.

Proper body mechanics allows individuals to carry out activities without excessive use of energy, and helps prevent injuries for patients and health care providers (Perry, Author: Jodie Anita, Glynda Rees Doyle, Jodie Anita McCutcheon.
