Personal transfer aids for short-term use provide optimal hygiene and safety

Handicare's range offers an increasing selection of personal transfer aids for short-term use. Most of these are made from a sturdy and durable non-woven (polypropylene) material, but we are also using a soft and breathable but still durable cotton/polyester blend. One of our most recent transfer aids in this category, the disposable EasySlide sliding mat, is made from a thin, pliable and environmentally friendly polyethylene (PE) plastic. This is a strong and durable material which, when incinerated, gives off only carbon dioxide and water. Used sliding mats can also be recycled as soft plastic.

Common features and benefits:

  • Intended for a single user and for short-term use
  • Instead of laundering, the product is discarded after use, when it becomes soiled or when the user no longer needs it
  • Prevents the spread of multi-resistant and other types of infectious bacteria
