  • Teasdale Healthcare Equipment's Slide Sheets are produced from silicone coated nylon fabric with an anti-bacterial finish on both sides to provide a long lasting low friction required for safe patient handling. The fabric is sewn into a continuous tube providing strength, durability, and efficient repositioning.
    Flat slide sheets should be used in pairs so that one surface slides against the other. The excellent sliding capability removes the effects of friction and offers a versatile and flexible tool in the safe repositioning of patients. The inclusion of handles on our flat slide sheets allows an easier grasp of the sheets, but they are used in the same way.
  • How to use: Moving a patient up and down the bed
    Assess the patient and select the correct size of tubular slide sheet.
    Place the slide sheet underneath the patient, as per moving and handling guidelines.
    Pull the top of the sheet so that it slides against the bottom of the sheet, allowing the patient to move up or down the bed.
    Remove the slide sheet using the rolling technique, or by working the sheet one face against the other.

    How to use: Turning a patient in bed
    Assess the patient and select the correct size of tubular slide sheet.
    Place the slide sheet underneath the patient, as per moving and handling guidelines.
    Gently pull the bottom or top of the slide sheet (depending on the way the patient needs to roll).

    How to use: Moving a patient from bed to chair
    Assess the patient and select the correct size of tubular slide sheet.
    Set the tubular slide sheet to move laterally and position the patient in the centre of the sheet.
    Lower the bed so that the bed is level with the chair.
    Place a transfer board under the edge of the slide sheet and onto the chair.
    Slide the patient across.
