Patient Moving and Handling Equipment
According to the HSE, manual handling causes over a third of all workplace injuries. Working with our customers we have worked hard to develop fabrics and products that protect medical teams and patients, making manual handling and patient moving simpler and safer. We work to exacting industry standards to ensure complete safety when the products are in use.
Redwood has a range of coated fabrics, which are specifically designed to reduce shear and friction and make patient transfer smoother and safer. As with all Redwood offerings you can purchase from us a range of suitable materials, or we will happily work with you to develop a range of products to suit your end-customer demand. These can be supplied as fabric only, or manufactured into a wide range of patient transfer products, such as slings, stretchers, trolley mattresses and slide sheets.
At the other end of the scale, you can specify fabrics with non-slip qualities, such as polyurethane coated fabrics. These increase grip making products like seat pads and wheelchair pads safer.
