These Slide Sheets are made from a Transtex, a specially developed fabric that is silicone coated on both sides to provide a slick, low friction finish for easy patient movement and turning. The durable fabric is suitable for hospital laundering using standard hospital laundry guidelines HSG(95)18.
Tubular Slide Sheets are formed by sewing the fabric into a continuous tube with a double sewn low profile seam that reduces potential tissue viability issues whilst adding strength and durability. A web hanging loop is provided to allow the tube to be kept with the patient at all times.
Slide sheets are not intended for lifting, and all patient manoeuvres should be accomplished without lifting.
