The Sliding Trolley Sheet can be used with a Slide Board – Trolley (sold separately) to slide a patient lying on a bed on to a shower trolley, operating table, etc.
The pulling straps are sewn onto both sides of the sheet. They are long enough to reach across a trolley or bed. This allows nurses to maintain a good manual handling position when sliding the patient.
Sometimes the Sliding Trolley Sheet can be used without a slide board. This would depend on various factors such as:
- The weight of the patient
- The hardness of the bed mattress
- The size of the gap between the bed and the trolley
