Glide and Lock / One Way Glide
Our Cushioned Bariatric Glide and Lock offers a waterproof top coating with 4 way stretch properties to improve comfort for the patient and can be easily wiped down and laundered in between uses. The additional webbing handles on each side of the Cushioned Bariatric Glide and Lock allow carers to assist the patient where necessary.
Extension straps can also be attached to the handles to reduce bending down and over reaching.
This Cushioned Bariatric Glide and Lock is primarily used with larger patients on chairs and those who want to continue their independence whilst positioning themselves in bed. The Cushioned Bariatric Glide and Lock is fantastic for those who require a small amount of assistance with positioning themselves further back into a seated position as it’s unique internal locking mechanism allows the user to slide in one direction and lock in the other. A directional arrow label is sewn on the top panel of the Cushioned Bariatric Glide and Lock and indicates the way in which the product will slide and lock. Once comfortable, the anti-slip base won’t allow you to slip forwards again
The Glide and Locks are suitable for most chairs, including – static and recliner chairs, wheel chairs and sofas. Please note, the top wipe able surface is not as breathable as our standard model. However, this material is a more convenient surface for home environments, wards area’s and other departments.
