The Sit Slide & Stand Pad – Bariatric is designed to help people:
- Slide their hips to the back of a chair to sit sit comfortably
- Slide forward to the front of the chair to stand up
This product should only be used under guidance and with the Carer’s assistance if necessary.
Place the pad on the chair with the webbing loops at the back of the chair. Then lift up the top section at about half way, and pull it towards the front of the chair to let it overhang the front of the chair. The Carers should stand on both sides of the chair and hold the webbing loops, so when the patient sits down on the front section of the pad, they will not slip forward and off the chair. The patient should assist by pushing with their legs to slide back, while the Carers pull the webbing back. If necessary two Carers can slide the patient on each side. Therefore a total of four Carers would be helping slide the patient back into the chair.
When the patient is sitting at the back of the chair, the gold webbing strap should be fastened behind the chair to stop the pad sliding forward. If possible wrap the webbing around the rear legs of the chair before doing the buckle up.
Before standing up, release the buckle and hold the webbing loops to control the speed as the patient slides forward. The gold strap and buckle is sewn to the pull back handle.

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.
