Glide Sheets are designed to minimise friction and sheering to an individuals skin and reduces the amount of pushing and pulling, which reduces the risk to all parties.
The glide sheets are made from a very low friction material and are an aid for sliding, transferring and repositioning.
Placed underneath an individual they enable an independent or assisted sliding movement in one or more directions across a level surface.
There are various types of glide sheets that can be accessed to support an individual.
Prior to glide sheets being introduced an assessment will be carried out by the appropriate person who will identify which glide sheets will be suitable as weight, height and health condition have to be taken into consideration.
