  • Glide free transfer board strips

    OK, MCDUFF HAD POSTED ABOUT THESE IN ANOTHER THREAD SO I FIGURED I WOULD GIVE IT ITS OWN .......


    ANYWAY, I JUST ORDERED A KIT. AFTER EMAILING BACK AND FORTH W/ ONE OF THE OWNERS HE ASSURES ME THESE WILL WORK W/ WET BARE SKIN. MEANING SHOWER TRANSFERS. ALSO ASSURES ME NEEDING TO PLEDGE THE BOARD WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST. I TOLD HIM I WOULD BE GIVING A FULL REVIEW HERE.
    THEY ARE INEXSPENSIVE AT 20 PER KIT.

    I will be interested in what you think of them for the shower. I currently put lotion on the board for showers, and it is a nuisance.

      It would be great if that worked!

      Just recently my shoulders feel like they've been run over by a herd of Wildebeests.

          just call them direct.
          i use the ultra slick, good board but does lose its slide after awhile then pledge is needed. for me, i truly slide to transfer, no tri's = zero lift, so the easier i slide tyhe better it is on my shoulders.

          i have an old adi board that isnt slick at all anymore, im going to try the kit on it.

              OK, got them last friday, so been using them little over a week.

              so far, they are da bomb. pita to put on but my wifes steady hand got them on perfect.

              havent tried them bare ass but my wife did just to see if your skin will slide it did, but im not crazy about bare wet ass transfers......

              we cleaned all the pledge off w/ alcohol b4 applying the strips. i put them on an old adi board that was not sliding anymore..

              well worth 20 bucks.

                cool, thanks dude.
                Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

                    Doesn't anyone use a slide sheet (not a padded one) for bare bum transfers? That's what I use, and it's quite hassle-free.

                      No Keps, can you explain more? Sounds interesting.

                        Oh...they didn't use slide sheets at your hospital after your sci?
                        At my unit, they were used to reposition those of us who were stuck in bed and needed to be turned (this was after coming off an auto-turning bed). It's like a "tube" of slippery fabric. This is put under a person, and then the person can be, er, slided (sp?) easily (the two slippery pieces of the tube sliding together).
                        I, er, stole a couple of these from my sci unit, and I use them for the bare bum shower chair transfer. I just make sure the slide sheet is on the end of the board, under my bum, and then I can easily slide across (simply removing sheet afterwards).


                        If Rhino is reading this, maybe he can explain more? (As far as I know every one was on these sheets at some time at our unit).

                            I have always used a thread-bare hand towel on my board for nekkid transfers. Very low tech and not always effective.

                            Before joining CC, I had never even heard of (or thought of myself!) using Pledge to slick things up! Does the Pledge help on bare ass transfers?
                            The strips sound even better. Thanks!

                            It is really great to hear about how others who use transfer boards do stuff! Even thought I am connected to a lot of w/c users in real life, no one uses a board!

                              yo quimby, no pledge does not help on bare ass transfers and as u know neither does a hand towel. these strips are the best thing i have found in 20 yrs, no more pledge needed. i cant imagine being a woman trying to do a naked transfer, your cooters are on the board trying to slide youch. get a set of strips, they will really help u.
