GLIDE AND LOCK / ONE-WAY GLIDE
This one-way glide sheet helps users to sit up in bed and large chairs, promoting both comfort and safety.
The Glide and Lock is ideal for those who need to sit up in bed because of sleep apnea, breathing difficulties or other medical reasons. The one-way slide sheet is especially ideal for users who need a short-term sleep solution or can’t use a long-term in-bed system because they share a bed with a loved one.
Similarly, placing the one-way glide sheet on a chair allows users to slide back into their desired position without slipping. We also stock a smaller Glide and Lock for smaller chairs.
The low-profile Glide and Lock is designed with an 80% breathable top sheet for maximum comfort. The top sheet’s anti-slip coating prevents users from slipping as they slide backwards in their bed or chair to reposition themselves comfortably.
This one-way glide sheet is designed for patients who are independent enough to manoeuvre themselves using their feet and legs to facilitate the slide backwards, whether in bed or a chair. Users may find it helpful to lean forwards and press their feet into the mattress (bed use) or floor (chair use) to ease the slide back.
Alternatively, we stock a Glide and Lock with handles for those who require greater assistance. We also offer a range of Satin In-Bed Systems, which allow users to maintain a comfortable sitting position and enables single carers to easily reposition users in bed.
If you need advice about the standard one-way Glide and Lock system, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
