The Uni Slide prevents patients from sliding down in a chair or in a bed. The Uni Slide allows a one directional slide (back into a chair or up in a bed) then locks, preventing the patient sliding forward. This reduces the amount of patient handling required to reposition the patient and thus reduces the risk of back injury to the nurse or carer associated with these tasks.
With the increasing incidence of MRSA, CDIF, and emphasis on infection control, as well as issues relating to laundering and ownership of slide sheets, Select Healthcare has developed the disposable Uni Slide.
