The Non-Slide Chair/Bed Pad can help prevent people from sliding down when sitting in a wheelchair and most types of chairs, such as office and recliner chairs, etc. It is also possible to use the Pad to help prevent people from sliding down in a bed. The Pad can assist people to sit upright, improving pressure care, posture and breathing.

When a person slides forward in a chair it can increase the pressure on the coccyx area, and may also affect their breathing. Sitting correctly can also help with eating, compared to being slumped in a chair. This product can also help Caring Staff save time when patients do not need to be re-positioned regularly.

The Non-Slide Chair/Bed Pad is suitable for people who are able to sit down correctly with their bottom at the back of the chair. When sitting on the Pad, it will be difficult to slide, unless the person is very active and moves a lot on the chair. If they are not able to sit still, the Pad may not be suitable for them.

This Product Does Not Contain Latex.

People who need assistance to sit or stand may also consider the Sit Slide and Stand Pad, which will prevent them from sliding forward and has webbing handles to allow Carers to assist when standing.

Size: 46cm x 39cm x 1cm

Hand or machine wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.

Note: The upper and lower surface is made from Miracle Grip, a non-slip material. The appearance is like rubber, but there is no latex in this material. There is some foam between the two layers of Miracle Grip, so when in use some of the Miracle Grip will dissipate into the foam.

WARNING: Keep the patient under observation to make sure they understand how the Pad works. Regularly inspect the patient’s skin to see if sitting on the Pad is causing any pressure care problems.
