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.

PREVENT CAREGIVER INJURIES BY REDUCING PHYSICAL EFFORT
Done manually, lateral transfer creates a risk of injury, most likely to the caregiver’s shoulders and lower back. Friction reducing devices reduce the pushing and the pulling force from tasks like in-bed repositioning and transfers with dependent patients or residents.⁴

HELP PREVENT PRESSURE INJURIES
Pressure injuries prevalence and incidence is high in many healthcare facilities and they have a significant economic impact for the organizations, and also affect a patient's quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. This type of injury can be prevented with mobility.¹⁻³

IMPROVE PATIENT SAFETY
Using a sliding aid while performing an in-bed repositioning or a transfer will improve patient safety.⁴

PULL STRAPS (OPTIONAL)
