Mattresses can be very heavy, with handles that may not be correctly positioned to make the mattress easy to carry, and some not having handles at all. Mattress Handling Straps are used to slide a mattress from a trolley to a bed, or when a trolley cannot be used, eg. when moving a mattress up or down stairs.

The Mattress Handling Straps have a baton inside the webbing, to make it easy to slide the webbing under the mattress so someone standing on the opposite side can pull the loose webbing through.

We recommend using two people to carry large or heavy mattresses.

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.
