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.

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.
