People with limited mobility, especially those confined to bed, are often at risk for painful pressure injuries.1 Prevalon Turn and Position System 2.0 Glide Sheet stays under your loved one, so it is always there to help you with in-bed repositioning. The wedges help float the tailbone off the surface of the bed to relieve pressure.
- Low-friction Glide Sheet helps with repositioning
- Wedges float the tailbone
- Microclimate Body Pad helps absorb moisture
7206-WBS is available for use in long term care facilities and home care. This version contains black handles on the underside of the blue glide sheet for repositioning. This does not have the longer boost straps available on the hospital version. The boost straps were identified as a safety risk as individuals in longer term care are often more alert and have less supervision than in the hospital environment.
