A drawsheet which is adapted to WendyLett base sheet so that sliding sideways is facilitated while sliding down in bed is much reduced.
WendyLett2Way is a drawsheet made of a material which is adapted to WendyLett base sheet so that sliding down in bed is much reduced. WendyLett2Way is available in two colours: white or white with narrow grey stripes, and in several sizes. Sliding takes place sideways, along the direction of the stripes.
WendyLett2Way is placed on top of a WendyLett base sheet. The combination of these two WendyLett sheets makes it easy for the caregiver to turn the user sideways in the direction of the stripes.
Fold the edge of the drawsheet and fill your hand with fabric, creating a good, strong ergonomic grip. Work methodically, using straight arms and leaning or stepping backwards to create a sliding transfer sideways. Then turn the user.
After turning, the gliding movement can be inhibited by bedding WendyLett2Way in under the mattress on both sides of the bed.
The WendyLett sheets are made of a mixed material fabric. Wonderful, smooth cotton provides for comfort while strong and smart polyester ensures functionality and durability. The quality of the fabric is continuously and carefully monitored with regards to strength, durability, burls, washing properties and non-inflammability.
The colours and patterns of the fabric in the WendyLett sliding and drawsheets are designed to indicate the function of the sheet and thereby also the needs of the user. White and grey stripes and checked patterns communicate in which direction sliding is facilitated and how the sheet should be used. The design also makes the sheets easy to distinguish in the laundry. And, on top of this, the WendyLett sheets look really good.
Using WendyLett, small transfers, turning and positioning of users in bed can be performed without friction and shearing damage of the skin of the user. The sheets are made of a very fine material and can favourably be placed on top of a pressure-relieving mattress without compromising the pressure-relieving properties of the mattress. In order to provide the user with maximum comfort, wa have also eliminated all seams across the sheets and made the joint seams of different functional materials really flat and low.
ThoraxSling is a specially adapted sit-to-stand vest that is used in combination with Handicare’s sit-to-stand lifts MiniLift200, MiniLift160 and MiniLift125.
RollerSlide is a padded sliding board with a sliding cover made from ULF (Ultra Low Friction), Handicare’s own sophisticated sliding material. The sliding cover slides round the board during transfer, reducing the friction under the user and thereby facilitating a sliding transfer without unnecessary lifting for the caregivers. RollerSlide also ensures very gentle transfers for users who are injured or very sensitive to pain.
AutoSlide reduces the effort when turning and moving sideways to readjust the sitting position before and during the journey. If a little more assistance is needed, the handles at the sides of the seat cushion allow for giving a helping hand.
OneWaySlide is a sliding mat with many functions The main one improves sitting positions in chairs or wheelchairs. The sliding
mat effectively retards forward movement yet slides backwards, making it easy for the caregiver to help the user move into a more comfortable position in the chair.
