sliding, for people with reduced mobility
The Sit Slide and Stand Pad is a one way slide pad, which:
Locks on itself when someone tries to slide forward
Allows a person to sit down at the front of a chair, and then slide their hips back into the chair
Either one or two nurses can use the Sit Slide & Stand Pad using the webbing handles. You can also help a person stand up by using the webbing handles.
They should be able to lean back against the chair, but they should not slide off it. This product will be good for someone who normally gently slides off the chair. It may possibly replace a belt type restraint. It is best if patients wear trousers as some slippery dress fabrics could ride up.
The pad does not build up heat, is comfortable to sit on and is virtually unnoticeable when in use. Test to make sure the pad does not interfere with any special pressure care cushions. You may be able to use this product underneath a cushion.
This item is more likely to be considered nursing home or aged care equipment rather than hospital equipment, although it it still often used in hospitals & rehabilitation facilities.
If a patient is very active, this product may not be suitable. Consider the Chair Belt for Sliders – Rear Fastening or another type of restraint.
