EASY SLIDE GLOVES
There are hundreds of uses for Easy Slide Gloves reducing handling associated with normal slide sheets. One carer can move someone across a bed in three easy movements – 1) Slide ankles across, 2) Slide buttocks across, 3) With patient’s head on a pillow, slide shoulders across. Two carers can easily slide someone up a bed, each with a glove on one hand. Place a glove under heels when sliding someone to reduce shear.
EASY SLIDE TUBES
Continuous tubes (40 x 40cm or 50 x 50 cm) to assist someone to transfer using transfer boards or for assisting carers to slide someone across or up a bed (80 x 80cm, 80 x 120 cm best across, or 120 x 80cm best up and down)
EASY SLIDE FLAT SLIDE SHEETS
Easy Slide sheets in 140 x 100cm or 140 x 200cm. Use two sheets together, one on top of the other, sliding surface inward. Carers slide the top sheet in any direction. Or fold one sheet over to slide someone across a bed. With the carer’s hands on the patient’s hips and shoulders gently push them away from the folded side toward the open side. Usually another carer on the open side will pull the top layer toward themselves to assist. To remove sheet after transfer pull the bottom layer towards carer.
EASY SLIDE FLAT SLIDE SHEETS WITH HANDLES
Continuous handles around 3 sides of the slide-sheet 90 x 200cm or 140 x 200cm makes it easy to grip. Use in pairs with the sliding surface face inward or use in conjunction with a normal Easy Slide flat slide-sheet 140 x 200cm.
