One-Way Slide SHeet / One-Way Glide SHeet
Hospital Direct’s wipeclean Glide and Lock is an advanced one-way slide sheet that enables patients to sit up in bed and maintain a comfortable position.
This padded Glide and Lock provides both the cushioning and the slide patients need to sit up in bed and remain comfortable. Whether patients use the one-way glide sheet independently or with carer support, it’s easy to set up the Glide and Lock system by placing the slide sheet on the patient’s bed and checking the directional label to ensure the sheet’s internal locking mechanism and anti-slip panel are the right way up.
The patient can then get onto the bed – or carers may need to hoist them onto the bed – and use the one-way slide sheet to manoeuvre themselves into a sitting position. If patients need assistance, carers can use the handles, which are positioned along the slide sheet – to guide patients into a sitting position safely. It is also possible to insert the slide sheet when the patient is already on the bed.
This Glide and Lock for bed use is part of our wider Glide and Lock range. This range also includes models with an all-over anti-slip coating and additional cushioning.
If you need more advice to find the model you need, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
