PPS Glide Single Patient Use Now Available!

The PPS Glide SPU is an innovative, air assisted safe patient handling solution.

Similar to an air hockey table, our technology reduces friction by circulating low pressure, high volume air through thousands of micro perforations.  This creates a cushion of air upon which the patient can be effortlessly moved from one surface to another.

Enhanced ergonomics and ease of use significantly reduces the amount of exertion required for patient transfers, and allows for greater patient comfort, increased operational efficiency and a safer workplace for caregivers. Portability, a small storage footprint, and radiology compatibility are all added benefits.

The PPS Glide SPU works just like our reusable lateral transfer pad by utilizing a cushion of air to safely transfer patients up to 1200 pounds from one surface to another. Our single patient use product has the added benefit of reduced cross contamination with a product designed to hold up for multiple lateral transfers during a patient stay.

Product Features

Makes lateral patient transfers nearly effortless for caregivers.

The PPS Glide SPU allows two caregivers to laterally transfer a patient safely while reducing the potential for back injury. The core of the system is an inflatable mat that lifts and floats the patient on a cushion of air, that with very little effort, caregivers can transfer even very large patients from one surface to another.
