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.

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.
