The Immedia MultiGlide is a nylon tubular slide sheet with high-low friction. MultiGlide is a thin slide sheet with ultra-low friction on the inside and high friction on the outside. The outside surface also provides a waterproof barrier.
MultiGlide is suitable when there is a need to minimize friction under the pressure points, for instance, when transferring and turning in bed, between bed and wheelchair, on the operating table or x-ray table.
MultiGlide is to be applied when necessary and removed after use. MultiGlide is available in several sizes (see variants below) & has has a loop strap for easy storage.

What is a slide sheet?
A slide sheets system consists of 2 layers of low-friction material that work together to reduce friction. As a patient is moved, one layer stays in contact with the patient, whilst the other layer stays in contact with the supporting surface.
This allows the material to slide against itself, thus reducing friction and shear to the patient’s skin and reducing user effort. Slide Sheets currently come in varying types, flat, tubular and hybrid (a combination of both flat and tubular), with each of these available in the form of disposable (single patient use or single-use) and reusable (washable).
