WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Non-Slide Chair Pad can help prevent people from sliding down when sitting in a wheelchair and most types of chairs, such as office and recliner chairs, etc. The Pad can assist people to sit upright, improving pressure care, posture and breathing.
When a person slides forward in a chair it can increase the pressure on the coccyx area, and may also affect their breathing. Sitting correctly can also help with eating, compared to being slumped in a chair. This product can also help nurses or carers save time if the person doesn’t need to be re-positioned regularly.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Non-Slide Chair Pad is suitable for people who are able to sit down correctly with their bottom at the back of the chair. When sitting on the Pad, it will be difficult to slide, unless the person is very active and moves a lot on the chair. If they are not able to sit still, the Pad may not be suitable for them.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place on the chair.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Non-latex rubber, tape.
Keep the patient under observation to make sure they understand how the Pad works. Regularly inspect the patient’s skin to see if sitting on the Pad is causing any pressure care problems.
