Features

With their high-quality, low-friction fabric, the HandySheet™ and HandyTube™ Manual Transfer Aids help you apply slings and reposition patients.

Plus, they retain their sliding capacity, even after repeated washes. The HandyBelt™ Aid can assist with short transfers—helping both patients and caregivers get a good grip.

Proning

 

  • The HandyTube™ aid helps prevent friction during the lateral transfer to the edge of the bed prior to turning the patient into prone position.
  • On a count of three, the team will slide the patient from the center of the bed to the side of the bed.
  • Once the patient is in position at the side of the bed, the care team may reapply any electrodes that were in place prior to turning patient to the prone position.
  • When ready to complete the prone process, the care team member on the destination side will maneuver the HandyTube™ aid by lifting the sheet in an upward/vertical motion.
  • The patient will gently roll onto the pre-placed pillows.

HandySheet Manual Transfer Aid

When you’re applying a sling, the HandySheet Manual Transfer Aid reduces friction between the patient and underlying surfaces. It is ideal for patients of size, pain-sensitive patients and patients with contractures. Designed for use in pairs, the HandySheet Manual Transfer Aid comes in a two-sheet set. It is available in two sizes:

  • A smaller/short model that helps you apply a sling under a patient’s legs, or on a patient in a wheelchair
  • A larger/long model that helps you place a sling under a fully reclined patient—featuring bed attachment loops that can be used by just two caregivers
