The GorePad is the ideal product for individuals that need to be repositioned in bed with or without incontinence issues. The cutout, reinforced, handholds provide a firmer grip and are an integral component of the GorePad, assisting the caregiver in turning, boosting and repositioning of the patient. Patients, trained medical attendants and lay-caretakers describe the pad as safer and more secure. Made of a three-ply, washable fabric. The top layer of the under pad is a soft quilted material that wicks moisture away for increased patient comfort. The bottom layer is 100% waterproof to protect bed linens and the mattress. The pad can be placed on a wheelchair, arm chair, or sofa. *The model in the photo is 6'3" approximately 180lbs.
