The Car Seat Slide Pads will assist frail people getting in and out of cars. It consists of a Top Pad and Bottom Pad. The person can slide their bottom back into the middle of the seat and then turn themselves around, lifting their own legs into the car. If they need assistance, a Carer can push them back into the seat and lift their feet into the car. If necessary, use the webbing positioning handles to turn the person to face the front correctly.
When driving, the Top Pad is secured around the carseat with a webbing belt. This is to stop the person ‘submarining’ or sliding out of the seat, if the driver brakes hard. After completing the journey, the Carer can undo the webbing belt to allow the person to turn sideways and put their feet outside the car. If they need assistance to stand, there are some webbing handles on both sides of the Pad that the Carer can pull on to help the person to stand.
The Car Seat Slide Pads can be washed in a washing machine. Consult your Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Back Care Specialist when using Manual Handling Products.
Washing: Hand or machine wash only, up to 80°C. Air dry or cool tumble dry.
Frequently Asked Questions about the Car Seat Slide Pads:
What's the difference between the Car Seat Slide Pad, the Car Roller Sheet, and the Handi Soft Turn Pad?
All of these items are car seat turing aids used to help people get in and out of cars. By far the best one is the Car Seat Slide Pad because it slides the best when it has weight on it. The Handi Soft Turn Pad can sometimes be a bit of a struggle to turn if the person does not sit in the centre of the Pad. The Car Roller Sheet has more or less been superceded by the Car Seat Slide Pad.
