Patient Handling

Safe patient handling avoids nurses and carers suffering from back injuries by using the right patient handling equipment and aids for each situation. The most suitable patient 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 patient handling aids. The most popular are slide sheets which are available in many sizes. Slide sheets are either flat, flat with handles or tubular. Other patient handling equipment available includes transfer sheets which are used by many carers moving one patient with the flat strong transfer sheet with handles which will hold a patient weighing up to 400kg. We also supply the innovative USA “Airpal” product range, designed to make patient lateral transfers easy through the use of an air inflated mattress which lifts the patient up and then smoothly transfers the patient to another bed or trolley. Patient handling aids and accessories available online also includes: patient turning rota cushions, rota stands, handling slings, repositioning gloves, stocking sliders and bed ladder straps.
