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.
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.
