WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
Suitable for people who need assistance getting into bed.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
We recommend using this item in conjunction with a Bed Slide Sheet. Use the large loop at the end of the webbing, to lasso around the leg or frame on one side of the bed at the head end of the bed. The Strap can remain lassoed here for future use. Place a folded Bed Slide Sheet under the Patient’s pillow and shoulders then slide it down under their back as far as possible.
Assist or ask the Patient to bend their legs so their knees are pointing upwards. Pass the webbing Strap under their bent legs and position the rubbery side of the padded section behind their upper legs.
Walk to the opposite side of the bed to where it is lassoed on, and standing next to the Patient, hold two of the smaller loops that are sewn to the main strap. Hold the loops that are within reach without bending over. Then move in a backward lunge, so your body weight will pull on the Strap.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Foam, material, webbing.
