Slide SHeet / GLide SHeet
Hospital Direct’s Heel Slide Sheet allows carers to reposition patients without risking skin shearing, carer injuries or patient discomfort.
This washable roller slide sheet allows health professionals to manoeuvre patients into virtually any position – whether for comfort or procedure – with ease. This way, caregivers can reduce the risk of injuring themselves while patients remain comfort during their medical care. Your staff will be delighted with the Heel Slide Sheet’s ease of use and performance.
The Heel Slide Sheet’s ultra-slippery material makes patient transfers as smooth as possible so practitioners can uphold the best care possible in all medical settings. The market leader Slideezi® created this technical fabric, which has dominated the glide sheet market by preventing skin shearing. What’s more, the glide sheet ensures quietness of movement to avoid disrupting others when caregivers are turning patients.
Simply send the glide sheet to laundry between uses to uphold good infection control practices and promote hygiene.
We manufacture our slide sheet solutions in our local Shropshire premises, where we ensure the utmost quality, independently test our patient handling products and ship to medical organisations across the UK.
