Maxi Slide Sheet
This device comes in 3 sizes to accommodate all patients. It is made of an anti-friction material that is lightweight and easily folded or bunched to aid in placement. The sheet is placed with complete coverage under the patient. A second sheet is placed halfway under the other sheet as a runway to whatever surface you are moving the patient onto. Two providers are placed on either side of the patient and with an effort of 80% push and 20% pull, the patient slides over with minimal effort. This device decreases the weight of the patient by 70%.
This device comes in both reusable and single use.
It is best used for patients under 350 lbs on a bed, couch or other flat surface, to laterally transfer onto an EMS stretcher.
