Adapted sliding board

Sliding board that fits in a small backpack – suitable for people with disabilities

Description
The sliding board Romedic Easyglide without folding edges is adapted to the user's needs by
- cutting it so that it is around 35 cm long (photos 4 and 5)
– providing it with a new hole to easily grasp it (photos 4 and 5).
The board is covered by a specially sewn fabric cover of slippery fabric with anti-slip material glued to the bottom and with a cord loop. Inside is a thin layer of quilting as padding. The fabric bag has a Velcro closure (photos 1-3).

Authors comments
The sliding board is mainly used during transfers with differences in level. The fabric allows the user to slide very easily and avoid friction. The sliding board works even when the user is not wearing clothes, though it is important to dry off after the shower before using it.
The loop makes it easy to grasp it and pick it up from the floor. The loop also lets the user hang it on the backrest of the chair so it is always available. The sliding board is small and convenient and easily fits in a small backpack.
When the user is dressed the sliding board can also be used without the cover, for example, during transfers to the couch. The user plans to lengthen the anti-slip strips on the back of the board. Since the board is so short it is important for it to be firmly attached.
The fabric is taken from a pair of old shorts (swimsuit).
