Chair Wedge Anti-Slide
- Important Information
The Chair Wedge Anti-Slide 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 Pelican Leg Support that prevents pressure on the heels and helps prevents footdrop.
About the Chair Wedge Anti-Slide
There is a wedge cushion has a layer of convoluted foam on top to make a softer more comfortable cushion. There is a firmer wedge foam below. 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.
