It's no coincidence that a business all about comfort created a blog all about community.
Here's how it all started:
The problem was obvious. The solution seemed obvious too. While working for a company repairing medical equipment, Transfer Master founder Aaron Goldsmith learned that hospital beds were too high for people in wheelchairs to transfer in and out of by themselves. Rather than shrug at the problem, he decided to do something about it. And a business was born.
Transfer Master secured a patent for the first bed that could be adjusted to a height below that of a standard wheelchair. In addition to that revolutionary feature, we also designed the bed to be a beautiful anchor for existing home decor rather than a stark and cold visual distraction. It was a surprisingly rare concept. And since 1993, we've been designing, building, and distributing high-quality custom electric beds for people with special needs.
It's still baffling to us. But before Transfer Master existed, medical companies designed their products with the convenience of nurses, aides, medical staff and delivery companies in mind. They did so with little or no consideration for the actual human beings whose comfort and wellness often hinged this impractical design. Well. We took a radical approach-- we would serve individuals rather than large healthcare organizations.
"Restore the dignity of individuals with illnesses and disabilities by enabling them to live as normally as possible, whether in a hospital or at home."
Even today, there is no other company in the industry that does exactly what we do at Transfer Master. Our team conducts extensive evaluations to determine each customer's specific circumstances. We then customize products for each and every individual. We believe beauty and comfort are integral to life. We believe that form and function should be one. We know that each of your orders is a brand new opportunity for us to grow and learn as we tailor product directly to a wholly unique human being.
As a team, we hand-build each model until it meets your exact needs and preferences. We don't take shortcuts. We strive for a lifelong relationship with you. At Transfer Master, we spend a lot of time thinking not just about your comfort, but about connection, another critical element to a happy and fulfilled life.
