HandySheet Facilitates the Application of Slings
HandySheet™ facilitates the application of slings by reducing the friction between the patient and the underlying surface. It can be used for both normal weight and extremely heavy patients and is made of high-quality, low-friction fabric which has a very good sliding capacity even after long-term use.
HandySheet is an excellent aid to facilitate the application of slings, especially on extremely heavy patients, pain-sensitive patients or patients with contractures.
HandySheet is available in two sizes. The smaller model, Short, is primarily used to facilitate the application of the sling in a wheelchair or under the legs of the patient.
The larger model, Long, is also used to place a sling under a patient lying down. This model has loops in the upper edge to facilitate the attachment of the sliding sheet to the bed, and thereby handle the operation with just two caregivers.
Characteristic features of HandySheet are
- The fabric is of very high quality, with very low friction even after many washes.
- The long versions of the HandySheet have loops in the upper edge to facilitate the attachment to the bed. The number of caregivers holding the sliding sheet is thereby reduced. This is unique to the HandySheet, and Liko has registered the design solution.
- The short HandySheet has small pockets which facilitate the application in, for instance, a narrow wheelchair. This is also a unique and registered design solution.
- We have developed unique work methods which facilitate the application of sliding sheets and which are also comfortable for the patient. With our method the patient does not have to be turned in the bed to place the sliding sheet.
The sliding sheets are always delivered in a set of two, usually used in pairs.
NOTE! Remember that a transfer with HandySheet should be simple and smooth. If the operations seem heavy, we recommend using other lift and transfer aids in our range.
