The Glide & Guide Patient Turn System reduces friction by 67% significantly reducing the force needed to position patients and offload the sacrum, reposition patients with ease and simplify lateral transfers. This patient turn system consists of a patient turn sheet and body wedges and allows for easy gliding across the bed while reducing staff injuries.
The turn sheet features a patient side with fabric that is soft against the skin, minimizing risks of skin shear and friction, and a slick bottom surface that glides with ease to easily position the patient. Staff or caregivers lift the handles located on the underside of the sheet for convenient gripping while decreasing the risk of back and shoulder injuries. The patient turn sheet is offered in standard and bariatric sizes and available with or without straps to secure the sheet to most beds. Bariatric sheets have a green bottom to easily stand out from the purple standard sheet.
