Unusual in design, the new 'fishtail' of the Tetraglide is proving incredibly popular for all people - although it was originally designed for use by tetraplegics.

With a radical shift from standard design, this 'fishtail' easily fits around wheelchair wheels, meaning that sitting transfers are easier than ever before - both on and off a wheelchair.

Uses:

  • To bridge a gap between two sitting surfaces, one being a wheelchair (e.g. bed to wheelchair, wheelchair to car) and allow a person (assisted or unassisted) to transfer between the two

  • All areas of healthcare where sitting transfers to and from wheelchairs are frequent or probable
  • General Wards
  • Social Services
  • Care in the Home
  • Community Nursing
