The Bed Slide Sheet Gripper is made from firm foam. It is used to make it easier to hold a Bed Slide Sheet (sold separately) when turning a patient.
Some Carers may have weak finger muscles. The Gripper enables them to hold the sheet without fully closing their fingers.
The length of the Gripper is 55.5cm / 22″ long. This will be a good guide to turn a patient correctly with the Carer’s hands about a shoulder’s width apart. To use, simply wrap the Bed Slide Sheet around the Gripper, with a hand close to each end of the Gripper.

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.
