Smart Slide Sheets are designed to reduce the effort required to move, turn or transfer a patient. Slide Sheet procedures vary based on the patient's needs and the patient's ability to assist with mobilization.
A single Slide Sheet is used when the patient is able to assist with mobility tasks by pulling or pushing with their arms, bending and pushing with their legs, or maybe just for a little boost. Two Slide Sheets are recommended when the patient is primarily bed bound and not able to assist with mobility tasks or self-care.
Smart Slide Sheets are placed under the patient to assist with mobility tasks and transfers. Once the task is completed, the Slide Sheets are removed and stowed for safety. Slide Sheets are never left under an unattended patient.
