we slides – tubes – Single Patient Use

Single Patient Use We Slides are made from a very slippery slide sheet material that is sewn into a tube.
They are particularly ideal for the following applications where a lateral transfer is required:

• Emergency Services Stretcher < > Bed
• Theatre Table < > Bed
• X-ray Table < > Bed
• Patient Transport Stretcher < > Bed


• A We Slide is often less than the cost of washing reusable slide sheets and tubes
• Improved manual handling – no excuses for staff not to have one because reusable slide sheets have not been returned from the laundry
• Central dispenser system – make it easy for staff to always have access to a We Slide
• Consistent slip quality for staff (unlike reusable slide sheets returned from the laundry)
• Avoid wards purchasing new reusable slide sheets and then receiving old sheets from the laundry
• When used in the lateral transfer position, patients can move 30cm up the bed, otherwise the We Slide ® can be rotated 90 degrees for up the bed manoeuvres.


• Bright yellow polyester taffeta for easy identification, with silicone coating on the inside of the tube – very slippery
• Reduced infection risks associated with cross-contamination when using reusable slide sheets
• Radiolucent – can be used for X-rays / CT scans
• Each We Slide ® sealed in a poly bag with label
for improved infection control
• Can be disposed of after single patient use
(used on one patient for the duration of
their stay)
• Weight capacity: 360kg when used with a draw sheet
• Recyclable in general use
