SlideAssist products by Managing Health

Safety, control and efficiency

Blue Seal technology is the secret of the SlideAssist One Way as a lot of time and effort has gone into developing the One Way mechanism. The Blue Seal strips have been designed to enable easy glide in one direction but complete grip on return. The mechanism will not deteriorate through use or washing and works 100% of the time with safety from slipping in a chair also.

Transfer, positioning and turning products

SlideAssist has developed a range of transfer, positioning and turning products that really work. Meticulous research and extensive testing have produced durable products, which stand up to the rigours of intensive daily use found in clinical and care environments. All fabrics that are used have been subjected to load, stress and washing tests to ensure you are getting the best from this product.

Each product has a carefully constructed, unique design:
  • EASY SLIDES - silicon coated fabric that glide effortlessly over all surfaces
  • ONE WAY SLIDES - are tough and the Blue Seal guarantees they do not slip back
  • POSITIONING SLIDES - that are uniquely designed to reposition and transfer
