The Sleep System Positioning Sheet is a thin, breathable sheet that is used in conjunction with wedges, plastic brackets, and other positioning aids that have Hook Tape underneath, to position patients in a bed. Some Therapists call these Receptive or Receptor sheets.

The Sheet can be used for people living with disabilities, or people living with palliative care.

The Sleep System Positioning Sheet has three elastic loops with black triglide buckles sewn to each side so that once secured on a bed, the elastic allows some stretch to adjust to a patient’s weight.

There are two product options to select from the drop down box:

  • Complete (Sheet and Hook Tape Straps) – This consists of the Sheet, and 3 Under Mattress Straps to secure it in position on the bed.
  • Sheet Only (No Hook Tape Straps) – This consists of the Sheet only, without the 3 Under Mattress Straps. This is available for people who want to purchase the Complete product, but leave the 3 Under Mattress Straps in position under the mattress when washing the sheet.

To Use

Remove the mattress off the bed base. Place the three Hook & Loop Under Mattress Straps on the bed base with the Loop side facing down, in the approximate position to align with the black triglides on the Sheet. It may be possible to place these on the bed base without removing the mattress. Leave the three Hook Tape sections open on each side, resting over the edge of the bed base. Place the mattress back on the bed base. Lay the Positioning Sheet on top of the mattress and then thread the Under Mattress Straps through the Triglides on each side. Tighten, and secure to the Hook Tape to the Loop Tape to give a snug fit.

Item # 1210 – Sheet with Three Under Mattress Straps

Item # 1211 – Sheet Only without Straps – A spare for washing

Size: 150cm x 100cm / 59” x 39” – Fits up to King Size Single Bed

Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air dry in the shade, or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag to help contain the product.

We recommend washing this product on its own, so that hook tape from other products cannot catch on the material.


Only one side of the Sheet will attach to Hook Tape. Ensure the ‘This Side Up’ label is showing when fitting to the bed.

The Sheet will hold the Hook Tape in place for a limited number of applications. If the Hook Tape is re-applied to the same place on the Sheet, the adherence will eventually diminish. Because of this, we suggest rotating the Sheet to give it a longer life.
