Maxi Slide sheets

A simple and cost-effective solution

MaxiSlide flat sheet with handles is a sliding aid that assists the caregiver with in-bed repositioning and transfers with dependent patients or residents.

The MaxiSlide sheets are easy to access and are an economical solution because they do not require a lift to perform a turn or lateral transfer.
