The PDQ Slider Positioner Draw Sheet and Knitted Fitted Bottom Sheet add a repositioning system to everyday bed protocols. The two-sided slider draw sheet will be used mostly by itself.

For more difficult-to-reposition patients, it can be used in conjunction with the knitted bottom sheet. It’s 100% polyester with a central panel of static-dissipative taffeta facing toward the patient. The system can be laundered with other bed linens. Available in standard 40” x 72” and 50” deep for bariatric use.
