The Slide Board Mat can be used with a Trolley Slide Board (sold separately) to slide a patient lying supine on a bed to a shower trolley, operating table, etc.
About the Slide Board Mat
The foam padding in the mat will protect the patient’s back from the hard Slide Board.
The pulling straps are long enough to reach across a trolley or bed, so the nurses can maintain a good manual handling position, when sliding the patient.
Sometimes the Slide Board Mat can be used without a slide board. This would depend on:
- The weight of the patient
- The hardness of the bed mattress
- The size of the gap between the bed and the trolley.
The Slide Board Mat can be unzipped to remove the foam for hand or machine washing.
