Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet

At last a Sliding Sheet designed for your Hoist to do the turning of large and bariatric patients.

This Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet is a development of our Slide & Turn Sheet. It is made out of a very strong breathable nylon fabric and has a special breathable foam pad to anchor the bottom of the sheet in place under the patient. This pad will also depress if there are any creases in the turning material, to help prevent pressure sores. A draw sheet, waterproof and absorbent pad can be used on top of the Sheet or underneath it. Many patients are using the popular Slide & Turn Sheet all over Australia, even in tropical climates. This development will reduce manual handling injuries considerably.

The Slide & Turn Hoist Sheet can be used manually, but for large or bariatric patients, it will attach to most hoists, so the staff do not have to turn the patient by hand. The patient can sleep comfortably overnight on the sheet, sometimes turned without being woken by the Carers.

Safe Working Load 220 kg, Weight Tested To 334 kg Tested to Australian Standard AS ISO 10535 - 2002.
