Patient Handling

Safe patient handling avoids nurses and carers suffering from back injuries by using the right equipment for each situation. The most suitable manual handling aid will differ from patient to patient and type of lift or transfer being attempted.

Manual handling injuries cause musculoskeletal disorders, which is the most common type of occupational ill health in the UK. Back pain, in particular, accounts for approximately 40% of all sick absence in the NHS every year.

At Interweave we supply NHS hospitals, clinics and nursing homes with a wide range of equipment. The most popular are slide sheets which are available in many sizes. Slide sheets are either flat, flat with handles or tubular.

We also provide transfer sheets which are used by many carers moving one patient with the flat strong transfer sheet with handles, these can hold a patient weighing up to 400kg. The innovative USA “Airpal” product range is designed to make patient lateral transfers easy through the use of an air inflated mattress. The Airpal mattress lifts the patient up and helps you to transfer the patient smoothly to another bed or trolley.

Other equipment and accessories available online includes: patient turning rota cushions, rota stands, handling slings, repositioning gloves, stocking sliders and bed ladder straps.
