Immedia OneWayGlide – For controlled and easy positioning
The OneWayGlide is a cushion that allows sliding easily in one direction whilst resisting sliding in the other direction. It is suitable for users who slide forward when sitting. OneWayGlide facilitates independent or assisted positioning back in the chair.
Available in four different versions:
A tubular cushion with a non-slip outer material that grips any surface. It can be combined with a cotton cover when necessary.
A tubular cushion with velour material. It is more comfortable to sit on but needs to be used on a textile surface.
A one-layer pad with a velour top suitable for use directly on a textile surface.
The OneWayGlide Long is an extended, open cushion with handles and a velour top. Its length enables repositioning to be performed multiple times in a single application. The handles ensure a good grip, allowing the caregiver to assist. It is available in variants with or without strings. The strings are used to tie the cushion to the wheelchair frame when necessary.

The use of OneWayGlide aid
Using the Immedia OneWayGlide eases repositioning when the user slides forward in the wheelchair.
To move backwards in the wheelchair the user must lean forward, hold the armrest and push towards the backrest using their arms and, if possible, legs.
When the user is upright again, the unique design of the Immedia OneWayGlide will prevent the user from sliding out of the chair.

What is a slide sheet?
A Slide Sheets system consists of two 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)
