In response to many requests by our customer's, ErgoSafe is proud to introduce our Bariatric ErgoSlide to assist in moving larger patients while limiting the risk to caregivers, by offering the ability to "Slide, not Lift" their patients. The Bariatric ErgoSlide is the only repositioning device designed by caregivers for caregivers.
ErgoSafe Slide Tubes can be used to move a heavy patient up or across a bed, sit them up, turn them, and help them get out of bed without pulling the patient's body, arms or legs, and without the caregiver having to lift. It is made from a strong nylon material sewn into a long roller band and is wide enough for a patient to lie on. Webbing handles are on both sides of the sheet around the full length, which are used to turn or slide the patient.
