Encompass Group LLC Swift® Slider Patient Repositioner

The Swift® Slider Patient Repositioner from Encompass is a cost-effective, low-friction taffeta positioner intended to allow nurses to safely and easily perform patient repositioning tasks with little physical strain. Manual repositioning with traditional drawsheets or incontinent pads exposes caregivers to increased risk of neck, shoulder and back injuries. Implementing the standard use of this repositioner will create a safer healthcare environment for caregivers, ensure the comfort and security of patients and residents, and support no-lift policies. The Swift Slider is constructed of two layers – a 50/50 cotton polyester twill surface and a thin, breathable taffeta backing. The breathable backing and thin profile minimize discomfort and injury to skin.
