Dressing Aids / In-Bed System

Getting dressed in bed has never been easier –  the Fishermen’s Legs enable dignified dressing for patients who need carer assistance.

This Pro Dress Assist Pack is a complete set of in-bed dressing aids that enables one or two carers to dress a patient/client fully in bed. Where dressing is difficult or uncomfortable, the Fisherman’s Legs enable easy dressing and promote patient dignity. Hospital Direct stocks the in-bed dressing pack in five sizes to fit all children and adults.

To use the in-bed dressing aid, unravel the yellow slide sheet underneath your patient/client. Next, slide the two “leg” sleeves over the person’s legs. The slide sheet will enable these leg sleeves to slide on easily. Then you can easily slide the person’s trousers on and remove the leg sleeves by pulling gently from the foot end. You can use the arm sleeve in the same way to slide on shirts, blouses and jumpers etc.

If you need advice about the Fisherman’s Legs Pack or Hospital Direct’s other in-bed systems, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
