RollerSlide is a padded sliding board with a sliding cover made from ULF (Ultra Low Friction), Handicare’s own sophisticated sliding material. The sliding cover slides round the board during transfer, reducing the friction under the user and thereby facilitating a sliding transfer without unnecessary lifting for the caregivers. RollerSlide also ensures very gentle transfers for users who are injured or very sensitive to pain.
RollerSlide is used for supine transfers of inert users between beds and an x-ray or operating tables, shower trolleys, ambulance stretchers or similar. RollerSlide bridges gaps and moves with the user during the transfer.
RollerSlide is available in three models and several sizes. RollerSlide, flexi is a lighter and bendable version of RollerSlide. And RollerSlide, light is a light-weight version of RollerSlide, flexi (refer to Specifications for details).
RollerSlide, flexi can be folded lengthwise along the centreline of the bed or the user and effortlessly adapts to the surface it rests on. This model does not require a flat surface and it is therefore very practical for transfers from ambulance stretchers or other uneven surfaces. In all other respects, RollerSlide, flexi is similar to the basic RollerSlide model.
All models of RollerSlide are available in two lengths, one which covers the entire body and one which covers the trunk. The longer versions are foldable in the middle for easy handling, transportation and storage.
RollerSlide, flexi is also available in two wider variants adapted for larger and heavier users weighing up to 300 kg/660 lbs, depending on the distance between the underlying surfaces.
RollerSlide is very easy to use and to maintain. The replaceable sliding cover can easily be cleaned and disposable covers, which are available as accessories, provide for even further improved hygiene and less laundry.
