Coronavirus update

Following the recent covid-19 announcement regarding the closure of non-essential businesses, we would like to reassure our customers that as suppliers of essential emergency equipment to the healthcare sector, we are still open for business.

While our aim is to continue to provide an uninterrupted service, we will continue to monitor the ever changing situation while taking all necessary steps to ensure the wellbeing of both our staff and customers.

The Ski Sheet enables progressive mattress evacuation of patients with mobility impairments from hospital wards in emergency situations. Located under the mattress, the ski sheet is instantly accessible and does not interfere with bed making.

The sheet is easily fixed to the underside of the mattress using its elasticated corner straps and the patient securing straps are stored in integral pockets located on the underside of the sheet.

When needed in an emergency, simply remove the straps from their storage pockets and secure over the patient. The mattress (and patient) is then slid off the bed and taken to safety using the head/foot end handles.

Made from strong low friction nylon with seat belt style webbing straps and NHS approved metal buckles. Machine washable - see product fact sheet for more information.

Under Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations, all persons responsible for using this equipment must receive the correct training. To meet this requirement staff should be trained only by a competent person, who has undergone an approved “train-the-trainer” course.
