BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Consult you manual handling advisor or suitable therapist for how to use this product safely. Generally, log roll the patient using a draw sheet and insert the slide board underneath. Roll the patient back down, ensuring that their head and hips are on the board, as these are the heaviest parts of the body to transfer, and the legs can be slide across manually. Ensure the gap between the two beds is as small as possible, and the bed’s brakes are on. Transfer the patient using the recommended manual handling technique.
