Liko Introduces Two Additions to Its 'Stat' Family of Low Friction Sheets
Date:7/1/2008

FRANKLIN, Mass., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Liko, a major supplier of patient lifts, slings and repositioning sheets for the healthcare industry, has announced two new additions to its "Stat" family of low friction transfer and repositioning sheets.

Both new products, the Stat HandySheet(TM) and the Stat HandyTube(TM), help facilitate the placement of slings under patients or the movement of patients in bed.

Manufactured of extremely low friction fabrics, the new products are designed to reduce skin abrasions to the patient while also minimizing the caregiver's workload during a variety of commonly encountered patient transfer and repositioning maneuvers.

Liko's new Stat HandySheets are designed to be used in pairs and are recommended to facilitate placement of a sling while a patient is sitting in a wheelchair or lying on a bed. The Stat HandySheet is offered in two sizes -- long and short -- to accommodate a wide range of applications. In use, a pair of HandySheets is first placed beneath the patient, then the sling is easily slipped between the two sheets with minimum caregiver effort. The sheets can also be used to reposition patients higher up in bed. For more info: http://www.liko.com/web/show_page.asp?pageid=8254.

Liko's new Stat HandyTube is designed to assist caregivers in repositioning, turning patients, or performing lateral transfer maneuvers. The Stat HandyTube is offered in three sizes: short, long, and wide. The wide model features sewn-on handles to provide extra grip when, for example, a single caregiver wants to turn or reposition a patient in bed. For more info: http://www.liko.com/web/show_page.asp?pageid=8253.

Certain models of the new sheets feature sewn-on pockets or loops in order to assist with specific caregiver tasks. For example, the HandySheet has corner pockets to ensure both sheets can be pushed completely under the patient at the same time. None of the new sheets are designed to be left under the patient for any extended period of time.
