ARJO Offers Full Line of Sliding Surfaces

ARJO offers a full line of sliding surfaces including bariatric Maxi Slide sheets, for bed boosting and lateral transfers. Maxi Slide products virtually eliminate physical strain on staff when performing in-bed transfer and movement tasks. The sheets are designed to prevent skin irritation, friction and shear since the patient remains on the same surface throughout the transfer, with movement occurring between two layers of the sheets. These sliding sheets reportedly even make applying slings onto very large patients easier. Maxi Slide training techniques for a variety of facility applications are available on a CD-ROM from ARJO.

The Maxi Sky ceiling lift range by ARJO allows staff to safely and comfortably transport patients without stress. The Maxi Sky is available in several different configurations offering a lifting capacity of up to 1,000 pounds to allow handling of bariatric patients in a dignified manner. The Maxi Sky1000 offers a complete ceiling lift system specifically designed to facilitate safe and dignified transfer of non-ambulatory bariatric clients. The sophisticated and easy-to-operate system allows a single caregiver to perform transfers using the hand control without stress or strain and with no manual lifting. All Maxi Sky ceiling lifts feature an overload weight sensor.
