The EasySlide mat is made of stain-repellent polyester, which slides easily. It is placed on the wheelchair wheel during transfers to avoid chafing.
The user, who has had chafing problems, now uses the sliding mat to protect his skin and to make it easier on his shoulders during transfers. He also uses the sliding mat between his knees when he sleeps to avoid pressure ulcers. To slide over from the shower chair or the toalet he uses the sliding material ‘Spilerdug’, see related tips.
