The Aero Transfer Slider is a transferring product which was specifically designed for use on aeroplanes. It is used to slide a passenger from a wheelchair in the aisle, to their seat on a plane.
It can be used with a Pelican Slide Board, but if the gap between the wheelchair and the seat is very small, it may be possible to do the slide without a Slide Board.
Although designed for planes, this product can also be used in other situations. This may include getting in and out of cars, to and from wheelchairs, etc.
Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.
General Manual Handling Warning: Manual Handling products are designed to assist carers to help patients. They will not make the carer stronger or fitter, but with correct training and use of the products, should make manual handling easier and safer for both staff and patients. When training, practise with an able-bodied colleague. If any procedure is not comfortable or is difficult and puts the carer or patient in a dangerous position, the participants should call out to stop the manoeuvre, recover and recommence. Never jeopardise your health by straining, twisting or being incorrectly positioned when manual handling. Always select the most appropriate equipment for the patient’s current condition and if in doubt, use mechanical equipment. Ask your Manual Handling adviser for individual guidance.
