The Mattress Strap is a 10cm / 4″ wide Loop Tape strap with a black triglide that secures around a bed mattress. It allows various Sleep System positioning devices which have Hook Tape underneath to attach to it, to hold them in place. The width allows for the positioning device to be placed either in line with the bed, or on an angle.
It is possible to use more than one Mattress Strap on a bed, depending on the patient’s individual positioning needs.
