    Introduction to the SatinSheet in-bed SystemThis workbook looks at SatinSheets, the complete in-bed system for turning and positioning users with a range of needs. It looks at the improvements with the NEW facelift, includes how to videos, a look at single handed care, independent and incontinent users, pressure care, use with children and sit to stand solutions.

    Base Sheet and Maxi top sheet explained

    2D base Sheet explained

    SatinSheets work for people who are active and just need some assistance with re-positioning themselves through to those who need full time care from family or professional carers because they are unable to move themselves.

    A simple, intuitive system that fits into the bedroom environment in an unobtrusive way.

    Comfortable bed sheets, natural to sleep on,

    Minimises friction under pressure points on the body which reduces skin damage caused by shearing that can lead to pressure sores.

    Helps the person lying on them get a good nights sleep. Turning and repositioning becomes easier so pressure is relieved on joints caused by being static.

    Also protect the backs of carers!

    Turning a PatientTurning a patient to carry out personal care or to relieve pressure is made safer for the carer and more comfortable for the user.

    Extra size options for larger mattresses

    Moving a User Higher up in BedPatients can often slip down in bed. The SatinSheet system allows a user to be easily moved back up a bed with 1 or 2 carers. If the patient is able, they can push on their legs to assist their carer. If they are unable, the carer can move the patient easily due to the low friction sheets which prevent shearing to the patients skin.

    Once they have been moved back into position, the sheets can be locked to ensure the preferred position is maintained whether the mattress is flat or the back rest is raised.

    Always carry out a risk assessment before using

    Immedia 4WayGlide & TwinSheet

    Slide Sheets for everyday needsSingle Handed CareThere are significant benefits in using products that promote single handed care, including lower costs and a positive impact on a users privacy and general well being.

    The Satin Sheet system enable users to be moved safely, with minimal disruption, with and without a hoist.

    Incontinent usersThe Immedia In2Sheet is an incontinence pad with a low friction underside. It is used on top of a cotton bed sheet with the satin low friction surface facing down. This reduces friction side to side so enables an incontinent user with limited mobility to be turned easily.

    The new and improved In2Sheet has a much larger incontinence pad to protect a larger area in the bed.

    Size is now 1050mm x 1250mm (was 900mm x 850mm).

    The In2Sheet also has handles along the sides for a better grip (and for use with a hoist if required)

    Incontinence pads can also be used with the SatinSheet system.

    Pressure Relief & Shear ReductionIn the UK pressure ulcer care costs 1.4bn 2.1bn per year. More than 90% of the cost of treatment is the cost of nursing time.

    The best way to prevent pressure ulcers is pressure distribution and minimising shear and friction and also frequent repositioning.

    The SatinSheet system reduces the amount of handling required to move a client as it

    Independent UsersSatinSheets can be used independently to help turn and reposition at night.

    People who have slight mobility restrictions caused by weight, age or a medical condition lie directly on the base sheet (double or single bed). By wearing cotton or polyester/cotton nightwear the friction required to turn in bed is reduced but they will not slide down the bed.

    SatinSheets for Children

    SatinSheets can also be used with children. They allow mum or dad, to turn single handedly for personal care or reposition a child with minimal disruption.

    Julie Graham, Therapeutic Positioning Advisor at Simple Stuff Works, has worked with one of our Sales Managers to trial SatinSheets alongside their sleep systems. She was amazed at how well they worked compared to others she had tried. It worked fantastic for carers having to move a client on their own.

    The sleep system f its between the SatinSheet Base sheet and Top sheet. The child can easily be repositioned to change point of pressure with minimal disturbance as the Sleep System stays in place.
