The Car Seat Slide Pad will assist frail people getting in and out of cars.
It consists of a Top Pad and Bottom Pad. The person can slide their bottom back into the middle of the seat and then turn themselves around. If they need assistance, a Carer can push them back into the seat and lift their feet into the car. If necessary, use the webbing positioning handles to turn the person to face the front correctly. You must still do up the seat belt when driving.
The Top Pad is secured around the car seat with a webbing belt. This is to stop the person ‘submarining’ or sliding out of the seat, if the driver brakes hard.
After completing the journey, the Carer can undo a plastic buckle to allow the person to turn sideways and put their feet outside the car. If they need assistance to stand, there are some webbing handles on both sides of the Pad that the Carer can pull on to help the person to stand.
