The Ski Slide Pad
The Ski-Slide-Pad has evolved from one of our best known products, the Ski Pad. Designed for use in areas of restricted space, such as congested hospital wards, care homes and other buildings with narrow corridors and/or single width fire doors.
The main feature of the Ski-Slide-Pad is the built in slide sheet, which is fitted on both sides of the pad for ease of transfer from bed/floor onto the pad — this is especially useful for individuals who require greater assistance during the transfer process. The slide sheets can also be used as an extra cover, where exterior evacuation is required.
In the event of an emergency, the Ski-Slide-Pad is easily removed from its storage bag. The individual is quickly transferred on to the Ski-Slide-Pad, using the slide sheet and then secured onto the device with the seatbelt style straps.
The Ski-Slide-Pad’s polyethylene base allows the pad to be pulled easily over most surfaces and is easy to control when going down a staircase.
