Better care starts with safety and comfort.

Patient Positioning Made Simple

The Swift Slider Patient Positioner is a cost-effective, low-friction taffeta positioner intended to allow caregivers to safely and easily perform patient repositioning tasks with little physical strain.

Patient and Staff Safety

Patient and healthcare provider safety are critical elements in the delivery of quality patient care. Inherent to ensuring this safety is the careful consideration of the various techniques utilized by healthcare workers to move and reposition patients. Manual repositioning exposes the caregiver to an increased risk of neck, shoulder and back injuries. It is essential for the patient that safe patient handling techniques are in place to minimize discomfort and injury to their skin.

Swift Slider Patient Positioner

The Swift Slider Patient Positioner was specifically designed to support the microclimate of patient skin. It is constructed of two layers; a 50/50 cotton polyester twill surface and a thin, breathable taffeta backing. The breathable backing and thin profile ensure that the device will not affect the pressure redistribution properties of therapeutic support surfaces as confirmed by pressure mapping study data conducted in early 2010. Consequently, the Sift Slider can remain under the patient throughout their stay as long as needed without comprising skin integrity.

The Swift Slider is manufactured in two sizes, the 40" x 72" standard size and the 47" x 72" bariatric size. Since the large surface area of the product accommodates the heaviest portion of a patient's body, it reduces the potential for shearing and friction, particularly in the at-risk shoulder area, frequently left exposed by other positioning devices.

The Swift Ultraslide System

The UltraSlide Sheet, a fitted bottom sheet modified with a low-friction panel down the center, can be used together with Swift Slider. The UltraSlide sheets should be used when patients/residents have little or no mobility and require extensive or total assistance for repositioning in bed. Used individually or together, the two parts of the Swift UltraSlide System reduce the force required to turn or reposition bed-bound patients/residents.
