MaxiSlide Flites

Premium resident/patient specific disposable tubular slides and flat sheets with handles

Arjo has combined two proven concepts, MaxiSlide™ and Flites®, to create MaxiSlide™ Flites, an innovative patient specific disposable sliding aid. Available as a sheet or tube for ergonomic lateral transfers and patient repositioning, MaxiSlide Flites support smooth, efficient patient handling routines.

Made of strong, ultra low-friction material, these aids offer an alternative to manual patient handling procedures. With the same excellent gliding properties on both sides and in both directions, optimum performance is ensured every time.

Physical exertion on the caregiver and the shearing forces on the patient are minimized. Strong built-in handles and disposable pull straps support optimum ergonomic working techniques, and because MaxiSlide Flites are full bed length, there is no need to use an extension tube. They are made from a biocompatibility tested, latex-free material and supplied in a user-friendly box for easy dispensing.

As a patient specific product, MaxiSlide Flites offer the most convenient and efficient solution for busy care environments such as hospitals concerned about cross infection.

High quality fabric and design

MaxiSlide™ Flites are made from a high strength, low friction material. The slide-ability is equally excellent on both sides and in both directions. They are made from a biocompatibility tested, latex-free material and supplied in a user-friendly box for easy dispensing.

Strong built-in handles

The built-in reinforced handles offer a comfortable grip, supporting safe and efficient handling routines, ensuring optimum ergonomic working techniques, thereby increasing nurse and caregiver wellness.

Disposable pull straps

The disposable pull straps can easily be attached to the sheets for lateral transfers, preventing caregivers from having to overreach, thereby reducing risks of injury.

Resident/patient identification tag and water soluble label

A tag where the resident's/patient's name can be written and a green water soluble label can be found on each MaxiSlide Flite. The label dissolves when exposed to fluids.


All MaxiSlide Flites are full bed length, which eliminates the need for an extension tube. The sheets come in three different widths and the tubes in two.

Cross infection prevention

MaxiSlide Flites are reusable, but intended for single resident/patient use only. This design feature contributes to reducing the risk of cross-contamination. Every sliding aid is individually packaged in a heat-sealed plastic bag to ensure optimum hygiene right from the start.

A cost effective solution

Designed to be extremely cost effective, MaxiSlide Flites can be used as an integral element in policies for safe handling and in supporting effective infection control. It is an aid that can help reduce costs associated with both injuries to nursing staff and cross-contamination between residents/patients. And, as a disposable product, washing and laundry costs are eliminated.

A versatile aid

This versatile sliding aid can be used to improve safety and efficiency in a range of handling situations. In addition to lateral transfers, it can be applied in a number of everyday tasks, such as moving a resident/patient up in bed, turning a resident/patient, and the easy application of slings in bed.

MaxiSlide™ Flites come in three different color-coded widths with pull straps as an optional accessory. MaxiTube™ Flites come in two different color-coded widths.
