The Four Way Glide system is designed to assist turning and positioning a person in bed. It consists of two components, a nylon sheet which is fastened to the bed mattress by elastic straps, and an open quilted gliding mattress which rests on top of the nylon sheet. This system is able to glide in four directions, and is able to be locked preventing movement when required or during transfers.

General Details

Extra product information

Gliding Mattress
The underside of the gliding mattress is nylon, and the upper surface consists of cotton. It is filled with polyester fibre.
Handles are featured to assist an attendant to use the mattress.
A square of slip resistant material is also sewn onto the mattress which enables it to be locked by a strapping system and nylon curtain which covers this section when free movement is not required.
When the system is placed on the bed the slip resistant material square should be positioned under the sitting area for optimal function.
The gliding mattress is firmly positioned and can be covered with an incontinence sheet.
When the system is locked the slip resistant material does not allow the user to glide down the bed if they are using a bed with a backrest raise.
If the gliding mattress is not locked at the head or the foot of the bed it enables the upper body and legs of the user to move freely.

Nylon Sheet
This has a high friction underside and low friction top side.
It is secured to the bed mattress by four elastic bands secured in the corners.

Factors to Consider

· A hoist may be used with this product to assist to roll a bed occupant. A wedge may be used to help position the person in side lying.
This can be used by two attendants to slide a bed occupant up or down a bed, or to either side.
Two handles are positioned under the sheet. These aim to provide the attendant with a neutral grip when gripping this slide sheet.
