The Slider Sheet Repositioner is a cost-effective, low friction taffeta positioner intended to allow caregivers to safely and easily perform patient and resident repositioning tasks with little physical strain.

The Slider Sheet Breathable Repositioner

The Slider Sheet Repositioner was specifically designed to support the microclimate of patient/resident skin. It is constructed of two layers; a synthetic facing surface and a thin, breathable taffeta backing. The breathable backing and thin profile ensure that the device will not affect the pressure redistribution properties of therapeutic support mattresses as confirmed by pressure mapping study data conducted in early 2010. Consequently, the Slider Sheet can remain under the patient/resident throughout their stay as long as needed without comprising skin integrity!
 
The Slider Sheet Bottom Sheet, a fitted bottom sheet modified with a low-friction panel down the center, can be used together with Slider Sheet. The Slider Sheet Bottom Sheet should only be used when patients/residents have little or no mobility and require extensive or total assistance for repositioning in bed. Used individually or together, the two parts of the Slider Sheet System reduce the force required to turn or reposition bed-bound patients/residents.
