The Etac Bariatric 4Way Glide allows easy low friction movement to provide a permanent ‘on the bed’ solution for bariatric individuals who require frequent repositioning.

The complete Etac Bariatric 4Way Glide system uses two components, a nylon under sheet and a top quilt with either breathable PU or cotton surface.  The combination of the underside of the glide mattress and the nylon sheet provides an ultra-low friction surface for movement in all directions, which facilitates positioning and turning, whether manual or with support of a hoist. The locking mechanism on the nylon sheet allows for more control. The non-slip section can be covered or uncovered depending on whether movement or no movement is desired. The Etac Bariatric 4way Glide has a net enforcement built into the glide mattress, allowing higher user weight and wider configuration for larger beds.

Suitable for use on pressure care mattresses and ideal for use with four-part profiling beds.

  • Top Quilt machine washable to 80°C.
  • Nylon sheet can be washed up to 95°C.
  • 2 part system — neither component can be used as a standalone product
