The Easy-Slide Base Sheet incorporates high friction side panels to stop the user from sliding too far across the bed. The Easy-Slide Base Sheet is also ideal for women who are heavily pregnant as it reduces the friction and shearing on the hips when attempting to turn during the night.

Easy-Slide Top Sheet

4-Way In Bed Positional System

The Easy-Slide Top Sheet is an in bed positional system designed to work in conjunction with the Easy-Slide Base Sheet. When applied to the Easy-Slide Base Sheet the system allows the user to be repositioned in bed in all directions due to the under panel of low friction material. The system can be used with either one or two carers.
The system also allows a safer turn of the user as it allows the turn to be completed in the centre of the bed. this reduces the cases where the user is turned on their side but is too close to the edge of the bed.
