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

STRONG BUILT-IN HANDLES
Each sheet has built-in reinforced handles for the caregiver to hold. The low-friction device helps the caregiver manage a range of in-bed repositioning and lateral transfers with dependent patients.
PATIENT COMFORT
MaxiSlide Sheets are manufactured in a soft fabric, which can be fitted beneath the patient promoting comfort and reducing shear and friction during in-bed repositioning and
transfers.4
PULL STRAPS (OPTIONAL)
Optional pull straps can be attached to the sheets for lateral transfers, avoiding caregivers needing to overreach.
