The one-way lock slide sheet from Teasdale Ltd is designed for use on a chair to prevent patients from slipping forward or slumping in the seat.
Three sizes are available:
Small: 37cm x 43cm
Medium: 45cm x 45cm
Large: 60cm x 80cm
How to use
Before seating the patient, place the one-way lock slide sheet with the arrow pointing to the back of the chair, with the front of the slide sheet hanging slightly over the front of the chair.
Position the patient so they are seated on top of the one-way lock slide sheet towards the front of the chair.
Once seated, ask the patient to slide themselves back towards the back of the chair, using the arm rests for support.
Check that the final position of the patient is correct, with them seated right back in the chair.
The one-way lock slide sheet will lock into position to prevent the patient from sliding forwards in the chair.
