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
Maxi Slide Tubes are available in five sizes to assist with a complete range of in-bed repositioning tasks.
MaxiTube Radiology is a small tube designed to be used on narrow surfaces such as during transfers to diagnostic equipment (e.g. for radiology).
EXTRA-LONG AND WIDE
MaxiRoll is a tubular slide for lateral transfers and is longer and wider than MaxiTransfer.
HALF BED TUBE
MaxiMini is a half bed length tubular slide sheet for patients who may be able to partially assist with their in-bed repositioning.
