Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with RoMedic, a division of Handicare, to offer their RollerSlide Patient Transfer Board to a wider consumer marketplace. Offering high quality and functional solutions to increase the independence of elderly or disabled people, as well as improving the convenience of those who care for them, Handicare’s reason for being in business is to “make everyday life easier” for every ‘body’, regardless of physical and/or mental challenges. As an international leader in the manufacture of everyday assistive devices, bathroom safety, stair lifts and patient handling equipment, Handicare continues to reach a more comprehensive audience with its acquisition of SystemRoMedic™ (formerly RoMedic, Inc.), LinidoSolutions™ (formerly Linido, Inc.), and Handicare Accessibility (formerly Sterling Stairlifts).
The SystemRoMedic™ RollerSlide is the perfect patient transfer solution when attempting to move a patient over gaps or different surface heights. While it can sometimes be difficult to get close enough to ensure safe, smooth transfers for both the patient and the caregiver, this RollerSlide can be utilized for supine transfers and moves with the users during the transfer process. Constructed with a cover made from SystemRomedic’s own sophisticated sliding material called ULF (Ultra Low Friction), this material reduces the friction under the user, facilitating smoother and easier transfers and avoiding the need for lifting from the caregiver. This special sliding material also ensures gentle transfers for users who are more sensitive to pain, or who are injured. The RollerSlide is available in different models and sizes for different purposes such as the ‘flexi’, which is a lighter and bendable version, the ‘light’, a more lightweight version, and varying lengths with one covering the trunk of the body, and another covering the entire body.
The RollerSlide is not only easy to use, it is also simple to maintain as its replaceable sliding cover is easy to clean, and even offers a disposable choice for enhanced hygiene and less laundry. “We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the ease and safety of the RollerSlide Patient Transfer Board from RoMedic and Handicare,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This innovative transfer device can bridge gaps of up to eight inches, and helps even out any height differences that can often cause very unsafe transfer practices for both patient and caregiver. The rigid inner board guarantees a stable transfer for gaps and varying heights. Foldable and easy to transport anywhere, the RollerSlide is suitable for use in hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehab and therapy centers, and in-home care. We are proud to offer this, and all of the fantastic SystemRomedic™ patient transfer solutions to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
