Cromptons Healthcare by MIP Slide Sheets are made from a Transtex, a specially developed fabric that is silicone coated on both sides to provide a slick, low friction finish for easy patient movement and turning.
Patient Specific Slide Sheets are made from Transtex fabric and are lilac in colour. Slide Sheets made from this lightweight fabric are designed to accompany the patient during their stay in hospital and then disposed of when the patient has no further use of them. Not intended for laundering. Lightly soiled sheets may be wiped clean using a dilute chlorine based solution or a good quality sterilisation fluid.
Slide sheets are not intended for lifting, and all patient manoeuvers should be accomplished without lifting.
