My father (Miles Miller) designed the roller board for his sister after she was in an accident which paralyzed her. He saw how difficult the wood transfer boards were to use and the struggle to keep it from sliding around. He looked for devices on the market and found little choice to pick from. The variations in materials/devices (sling lift ) he found were either ineffective, very costly, or take up a lot of room, especially the bathroom.
