Swift UltraSlide Bariatric Base Sheet and Half Length 4Way Slider Sheet Pack

Caring for bariatric patients puts you at an increased risk of suffering from a neck, back or shoulder injury, particularly if you help move or reposition patients. The Swift UltraSlide Bariatric Base Sheet and Half Length 4Way Slider Sheet Pack is designed to help you move bariatric patients easily to reduce your risk of injury – all while ensuring your charge remains comfortable.

What's Included in This Pack?

The Swift Base and Slider Sheet Pack includes the following items:

Key Features and Benefits

  • Cost-effective pack improves safety for patient and caregiver
  • Specifically designed for bariatric patients
  • Ideal for patients who are bedridden
  • Base sheet:
    • Created for bariatric mattresses
    • Features an integrated low-friction panel for comfort
    • Helps patients move themselves easily in bed without discomfort
    • Constructed using patented Envelope design to keep patient comfortable
    • Made with stretchy fabric to improve fit of sheet
  • Sliding aid:
    • Designed to allow four-directional movement
    • Made with a yellow taffeta backing for differentiation
    • Helps reduce the risk of neck, shoulder and back injuries for caregivers
    • Friction-reducing construction for improved patient comfort
    • Ideal for patients requiring assistance with bed mobility
    • Remains in situ to assist with repositioning and turning in bed
    • Thin profile to ensure pressure-redistributing mattresses work
    • Suitable for remaining on the bed and being tucked in for easy repositioning

Ideal for Both Patient and Carer

Working with patients who suffer from low or limited mobility often means that they require additional help with turning or moving in bed to prevent the build up of pressure. The Swift UltraSlide Bariatric Base Sheet is designed with low friction material to ensure the patient remains safe even when they are moving around or being moved in bed. The base sheet is also ideal for residents who are sometimes relatively independent as it allows them move more easily by themselves.

As a caregiver, you are at an increased risk of suffering from an injury to the neck or back, particularly if you need to perform tasks that require the moving, turning or lifting of patients. The Half Length 4Way Slider Sheet allows you to position patients easily without having to lift the patient. As it reduces the force required to turn or reposition bedridden patients and residents, it prevents excess strain on your joints and limbs.

Easily-Differentiated Design

Whether you work in a care home or a hospital, you likely care for at least a dozen patients each day, so it can be difficult to keep up with each patient's individual needs and requirements. The Swift UltraSlide Bariatric Sheet and Half Length Slider Sheet are each designed with distinct patterns and colours on the back to prevent them from becoming mixed up in the wash. While the included base sheet is constructed with a central blue panel and yellow stitching, while the sliding aid is designed with a yellow backing for easy differentiation.
