The Chair Wedge Anti-Slide cushion can be used as a non-restraint product to help prevent patients from sliding off chairs.
When in use, ensure the patient’s feet reach the ground or footplates, if in a wheelchair. Do not leave their feet dangling above the floor. We recommend using a Leg Support that prevents pressure on the heels and helps prevents footdrop.
About the Chair Wedge Anti-Slide
This cushions consists of an angled foam wedge on the bottom and a layer of convoluted foam on top. The convoluted foam on top makes it softer and more comfortable to sit on. Four ties are provided to secure the cushion to a chair.
This product is an alternative to our Sit Slide & Stand Pad. This is used to slide a patient’s hips to the back of the chair and as it only slides in one direction the patient should not slide off the chair. The webbing handles can also be used to help the patient stand up when transferring.
For more active patients, the Chair Belt for Sliders – Rear Fastening may be an option. This will allow the patient to twist, turn, and move their legs, but will stop them from sliding or standing.
