The Ski Sheet is an emergency evacuation system designed for individuals with mobility disabilities or spinal cord injury and other people who are unable to get out of bed. The Ski Sheet straps to the underside of a mattress of a bed with four elastic straps that fit over the mattress corners. In case of emergency, the caregiver(s) extend the halves of two safety restraints from the four corners of the sheet and fasten across the chest and legs of the user, securing him or her to the mattress. When pulled tight, the restraints also will bend the sides of the mattress upward so the user's sides are protected during evacuation. The restraints fasten like standard seat belts. The Ski Sheet also has long fabric handles that extend from the underside at the head and foot of the mattress. The handles can be used to lift and move the user and the mattress as a single unit to safety. When the Ski Sheet is not in use, the handles tuck under the mattress, and the halves of the safety restraints tuck into pockets sewn into the corners of the sheet. CAPACITY: 350 pounds. WEIGHT: 1 pound. COLOR: Red with black straps.
