Transfer mat

Glide mat for easy horizontal moves for persons with extensive disabilities and for assistants

A glide mat is used for reclining transfers between bed and shower cart, stretcher, etc.
The glide mat is quilted and the fabric is made of a material that reduces friction.

Authors comments
The glide mat is not ordinarily used. The user has it at home in case she needs to be transferred while lying down.
