The ErgoGlide one way glide is used to help maintain good sitting position by allowing for easy repositioning of clients in chairs.
The friction reducing surface minimizes forces required to achieve a proper seated position for clients. The locking material reduces the risk of the client slipping forward. This one way glide is available in two configurations, a continuous tube or with a foot loop.
ErgoSafe recommends that caregivers practice with the Bariatric Slide Tube prior to actual patient care, as working with each other will allow you to appreciate the feeling from the patient’s perspective. It is imperative to provide proper patient care and to limit risk of injury to caregivers through the use of ergonomic manual handling aids such as the Slide Sheet. Learning to turn, sliding patients up and down in bed, or simply repositioning the patient can be accomplished safely and easily by implementing the standard use of an ErgoSafe™ Bariatric Slide Tube in your healthcare facility today.
ErgoSafe Products works closely with nursing homes and other care giving institutions to provide patient handling devices to assist caregivers with their daily tasks of moving and repositioning patients. Call Prism Medical today and begin employing safer conditions for your employees and patients.
