WendyLett Slide Sheets
Facilitates turning in bed
A wonderful satin sliding sheet
WendyLett slide sheets are intended for users who have difficulties turning in bed. The smooth and silky central part, enables turning with minimal effort. Sliding sideways is made easy without risk of sliding off the bed by the anti-slip material at both sides of the sheet. The material also prevents the user from sliding down in bed.
WendyLett sliding sheet is bedded in the bed like a normal sheet, with the smooth surface in the middle of the bed. For users who need more assistance, WendyLett can be combined with WendyLett2Way drawsheet or WendyLett4Way sliding drawsheet.
The WendyLett family consists of three different WendyLett slide sheets
- WendyLett is a satin sliding sheet and a base sheet to be combined with
- WendyLett2Way, a drawsheet for sliding sideways or
- WendyLett4Way, a sliding drawsheet for multi-directional sliding.
A comfortable functional material
The WendyLett sheets are made of a mixed material fabric. Wonderful, smooth cotton provides for comfort while strong and smart polyester ensures functionality and durability. The quality of the fabric is continuously and carefully monitored with regards to strength, durability, burls, washing properties and non-inflammability.
Communicating and self-instructing design
The colours and patterns of the fabric in the WendyLett sliding and drawsheets are designed to indicate the function of the sheet and thereby also the needs of the user. White and grey stripes and checked patterns communicate in which direction sliding is facilitated and how the sheet should be used. The design also makes the sheets easy to distinguish in the laundry. And, on top of this, the WendyLett sheets look really good.
A transfer aid which prevents pressure-related sores
Using WendyLett, small transfers, turning and positioning of users in bed can be performed without friction and shearing damage of the skin of the user. The sheets are made of a very fine material and can favourably be placed on top of a pressure-relieving mattress without compromising the pressure-relieving properties of the mattress. In order to provide the user with maximum comfort, we have also eliminated all seams across the sheets and made the joint seams of different functional materials really flat and low.
WendyLett2Way Slide Sheets
For easy and comfortable turning of users
WendyLett2Way is a drawsheet made of a material which is adapted to WendyLett base sheet so that sliding down in bed is much reduced. WendyLett2Way is available in two colours: white or white with narrow grey stripes, and in several sizes. Sliding takes place sideways, along the direction of the stripes.
A drawsheet to be combined with WendyLett base sheet
WendyLett2Way is placed on top of a WendyLett base sheet. The combination of these two WendyLett sheets makes it easy for the caregiver to turn the user sideways in the direction of the stripes.
Fold the edge of the drawsheet and fill your hand with fabric, creating a good, strong ergonomic grip. Work methodically, using straight arms and leaning or stepping backwards to create a sliding transfer sideways. Then turn the user.
After turning, the gliding movement can be inhibited by bedding WendyLett2Way in under the mattress on both sides of the bed.
WendyLett4Way Slide Sheets
Easy and comfortable turning and positioning of users in bed
The multi-directional WendyLett4Way sliding drawsheet is made of a material which is designed to work in combination with WendyLett base sheet. WendyLett4Way is grey/white checked and available in several sizes. Sliding takes place in four directions; sideways as well as upwards and downwards, as indicated by the checked pattern.

WendyLett4Way is placed on top of a WendyLett base sheet. A marking tag indicates which side should be facing upwards. WendyLett4Way has an anti-friction material on the underside and the combination of these two WendyLett sheets allows for multi-directional moves in bed. Procedures such as turning in bed, moving higher up/lower in bed or re-adjusting a user while lying becomes simple to achieve with this combination, even with the heavier or passive user. The function of WendyLett4Way also makes it possible to perform gentle and comfortable transfers of users in pain.
After turning, the gliding movement can be inhibited by bedding WendyLett4Way in under the mattress on both sides of the bed.
Combine with TopSheet for extra heavy or difficult turning procedures
If the scenario requires further support, for instance for extra heavy/difficult turning or when the carers are frequently required to hold the user in position while the user is being cared for, SystemRoMedic TopSheet can be added and much backstrain can be avoided. Furthermore, when TopSheet is used the load is spread over the full body area, which is very important when assisting users in much pain. The transfer is performed without risk of friction and shearing damage of the skin of the user thus further preventing pressure-related sores.
