The Etac Bariatric 4Way Glide allows easy low friction movement to provide a permanent ‘on the bed’ solution for bariatric individuals who require frequent repositioning.

The complete Etac Bariatric 4Way Glide system uses two components, a nylon under sheet and a top quilt with either breathable PU or cotton surface.  The combination of the underside of the glide mattress and the nylon sheet provides an ultra-low friction surface for movement in all directions, which facilitates positioning and turning, whether manual or with support of a hoist. The locking mechanism on the nylon sheet allows for more control. The non-slip section can be covered or uncovered depending on whether movement or no movement is desired. The Etac Bariatric 4way Glide has a net enforcement built into the glide mattress, allowing higher user weight and wider configuration for larger beds.

Suitable for use on pressure care mattresses and ideal for use with four part profiling beds.

  • Top Quilt machine washable to 80°C.
  • Nylon sheet can be washed up to 95°C.
  • 2 part system — neither component can be used as a standalone product.
