The Rollingboard is a lightweight board used for transferring patient. It helps slide a patient from an operating table to a trolley, or from a trolley to a bed etc.
The Board is made from a firm foam, comfortable for the patient and strong enough to bridge a narrow gap between a trolley, bed or operating table.
Log roll the patient and place the board under them. Use the draw sheet the patient is lying on to pull the patient, and the board will roll across.
The Rollingboard's outer cover can be wiped between patients with a Hospital Grade Disinfectant, such as Cliniclean made by Jaysol, and dried with a towel. To remove the outer cover, line up the padding sewn into the ends, to be parallel on the top and bottom and not curved around the edges. It is then easy to slide the cover off. The inner cover can be removed by undoing the Hook & Loop Tape. The foam board can be washed, hosed down or scrubbed and dried with a sponge or towel. Wipe the outer cover with hospital grade disinfectant & dry with a towel - remove outer & inner covers for hand or machine washing up to 60°C (140°F). Do not tumble dry but dry with towel. Foam board can be washed, hosed down or scrubbed then dried with sponge or towel.
