Facilitates the application of slings.
The Liko HandySheet facilitate the application of
slings by reducing friction against the underlying surface. They can be used
both for patients with average weight and bariatric patients and are
manufactured in a high quality low-friction fabric, which keeps its good sliding
capabilities even after a long period in use.
HandySheet is an excellent aid for facilitating the
application of slings, especially for bariatric patients, pain sensitive
patients and patients with contractures.
HandySheet is available in two sizes, of which the smaller
model, Short, is mainly used to facilitate placement of the sling in a
wheelchair or under the patientís legs.
The larger model, Long, is also used to aid application of
a sling, though under a patient lying down. This model has loops on the upper
edge with which the sheet can be secured to the bed; thereby, only two
caregivers are required.
Special features of products in the Handy series include:
Fabric of very high quality that retains its
extremely low friction, even after repeated laundering.
The longer models of HandySheet have loops on the
upper edge, which means they can be easily secured to the bed. Therefore,
fewer personnel are required. This is a unique feature of HandySheet, and
Liko has registered the design.
The short sheets have small pockets, which are sewn
on and which facilitate application in, e.g. a tight-fitting wheelchair.
This is also a unique, registered design feature.
We have also developed unique working methods that
facilitate application of the sheet and improve comfort for the patient.
With our method, the patient doesnít need to be turned in bed to allow the
sheet to be positioned.
The sheets are always delivered in
sets of two and are normally used in pairs.
Transfers with HandySheet should be smooth and easy. If
the task seems heavy, we recommend the use of other lifting and transfer
assistive devices in our range.
HandySheet Short is here applied the patients back so
that the slings slides down easier.
HandySheet Long helps applying a sling for a supine
The loops on HandySheet Long can easily be attached to
