In recent years, many caregivers adopt the concept of Body Mechanics as the one of nursing care technique, for example Kinaestetik, Nursing Biomechanics, and so on. The concept is defined as the support of Patients' natural movement. We take Body Mechanics as the ergonomie method, and propose the method for quantitative analysis of both a patient and a caregiver. In this article, we proposed the transfer assist equipment based on Body Mechanics and demonstrated the effectiveness of the equipment.
