Maxi Slide Tube

MaxiSlide Tubes are designed to help caregivers carry out daily repositioning and transfers with less of the physical stress and strain associated with manual handling.1

Prevent caregiver injuries by reducing physical effort
Done manually, some patient handling tasks create a risk of injury, most likely to the caregiver’s shoulders and lower back. Our MaxiSlide Tubes have ultra-low friction properties that help caregivers to move and reposition patients in bed.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 injuries can be prevented with mobility.1-3
• Patient comfort, security and dignity
MaxiSlide Tubes are manufactured in a soft fabric. Using slide sheet devices for in bed movements has benefits not only for safety, but also for the patients’ comfort, security and dignity.4

MaxiMini is a half bed length tubular slide sheet for patients who may be able to partially assist with their in-bed repositioning.
MaxiTube is small tubular sheet to be used with the standard bed length MaxiSlide Sheets to protect the patient’s heels from shear and friction during in-bed repositioning and transfers.
