slide sheet / glide sheet
Safely turn, transfer, swivel and reposition patients in beds and trolleys using a disposable smart slide sheet with handles.
Hospital Direct manufactures these patient-specific flat slide sheets using an advanced technical fabric that is smooth, soft and quiet, yet strong and robust. The pioneering material’s slippery properties allow health professionals to easily manoeuvre patients/clients in a variety of ways, taking the friction out of patient repositioning. With a disposable smart slide sheet in place, carers can move a patient up, down, from side to side and – if using a large enough glide sheet – onto another surface.
Health professionals who like handles will love these slide sheets. Stitched securely down both sides, the patient-specific flat sheet handles make it easier for patients to sit forward in bed and allow you to transfer patients from surface to surface. You can also loop our straps through the handles to assist with transferring manoeuvres.
At Hospital Direct, we pride ourselves on offering the best prices, as well as the best quality. All of our manufacturing takes place in the UK so that we can guarantee the best performance products at the best prices. Please note prices are per slide sheet. The sheets come in boxes of 25 or 50 (if you place a purchase order), so make sure to enter the correct number in the quantity box.
Choose from an extensive range of patient-specific flat slide sheets to suit your specific needs. The Disposable Flat Slide Sheet with Handles is available in seven sizes. Meanwhile, we also stock Disposable Flat Slide Sheets without Handles. Please note that product codes marked with an asterisk 140cm wide is classed as bariatric sizes.
