EasyGlide: The original EasyGlide boasts rounded corners and double anti-slip tape on the backside to prevent the board from sliding during transferring. Multiple sizes are available to ensure a perfect slide every time. Select the longer versions when transferring from wheelchair to car or opt for three-part version, which features foldable long sides to shield the wheels of a wheelchair and protect youwhen sliding.
EasyGlide, extra long: Resembling a backboard, the extra-long version makes lateral transfers between beds or stretchers a breeze. When supine/lateral transfers won’t exceed six inches, simply place the low-friction surface under the patient with the anti-slip tape facing the firm transfer surface.
EasyGlide, oval: The oval design allows for quick and easy application of lifting slings in both the recumbent and seated positions. The rounded shape and low-friction surface make the placement and removal of slings easier while maintaining the patient’s dignity. The oval model also can be used during lateral transfers that are less than two inches.
EasyGlide, mini oval: Don’t let the name fool you. This mini sliding board packs a mean punch when it comes to convenient application of slings as well as facilitating users to reposition themselves further back in a chair. Used in pairs, gracefully tuck a sling beneath a patient or allow them to reposition in a chair to a more comfortable position.
