Swift Half Length 4Way Swift Slider Sheet for Patient Positioning

Manually positioning patients puts strain on caregivers, significantly increasing their risk of injuring their neck, shoulders or back. The Swift Half Length 4Way Swift Slider Patient Positioning Sheet is a low friction repositioning aid that is intended to help caregivers safely and easily perform handling tasks with minimal physical strain.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Swift sliding aid allows you to move patient in four directions
  • Made with a yellow taffeta backing for easy differentiation
  • Suitable for standard and bariatric applications
  • Helps reduce the risk of neck, shoulder and back injuries for caregivers
  • Cost-effective low-friction repositioning aid for improved safety
  • Ideal for patients requiring assistance with bed mobility
  • Remains in situ to assist with repositioning and turning in bed
  • Thin profile doesn't impair performance of pressure redistribution mattresses
  • Can remain on the bed and tucked in when not in use for whenever it's required
  • Offers comfort and dignity to the patient during use

Reduces Strain on Caregivers

Whether you're a carer for a single patient in their own home or you're a caregiver in a hospital who works with dozens of patients a day, you are at an increased risk of experiencing discomfort in the neck, shoulders and back. The Swift 4Way Slider Sheet helps to reposition patients easily, which in turn alleviates strain and pain on your body.

Ideal for Use with a Swift Base Sheet

The 4Way Swift Slider Sheet is effective for use by itself, but is more effective when used in conjunction with one of our Swift base sheets. Please click on the links below to find out more information about each:

Usage Guidelines for the Swift Slider

Please follow these instructions or watch the video below to properly and more effectively use the Swift 4Way Slider Sheet. The sheet should be used with a caregiver on either side of the bed.

  1. Place the brakes of the bed on.
  2. Place pillow at the head of the bed to avoid accidental head injury.
  3. Place the Swift slider on the bed, with the low-friction yellow taffeta panel facing the mattress.
  4. Position the patient centrally on the white surface of the slider. The central panel should offer support from the neck to just below the buttocks.
  5. Bend the patient's knees to protect heels from being dragged across linen.
  6. Lower the side rails and raise the bed to almost elbow height of the shortest caregiver.
  7. Each caregiver should hold the positioning aid with two hands: one at shoulder height and one at hip height.
  8. Gather the sheet as close as possible to the patient's body and reposition by laterally shifting body weight.
  9. Once successfully repositioned, smooth out the sliding sheet and tuck flaps securely under the mattress.
