Which WendyLett Sheet Is Best for You?

Tuesday, 8 May 2018  |  Paul

The WendyLett range is an excellent choice for moving and turning your patients in bed, but Which WendyLett Sheet Is Best for You? We've made a short guide to help you differentiate between WendyLett base sheets, and 2Way and 4Way draw sheets. Find out how to tell them apart and which are best for you and your client by reading our handy blog!

Which WendyLett Sheet Is Best for Me?

Don't Stay Confused. Find Out Which WendyLett Sheet Is Best for You

Confused? Find out which WendyLett sheet is best by reading on

It's the question on everybody's lips, and we at Health and Care are here to set the record straight. The biggest difference between each of the WendyLett sheet ranges is a matter of need.

If your patient can move around fairly independently but needs a little extra help turning in bed, the WendyLett base sheets are an excellent solution. Conversely, those who need help from you or another carer to turn around and get comfortable in bed are more likely to need one of the WendyLett 2Way sheets. In comparison the WendyLett 4Way sheets can move in four directions to provide you with more control in moving your clients, making them ideal for those who have severely limited mobility.

WendyLett Base Sheets

WendyLett Base Sheets are Ideal for a Wide Range of Applications

The WendyLett base sheets are easy to differentiate from other sheets

The WendyLett base sheets are designed for use by those who are still able to move around independently in bed. Designed in a wide range of sizes, you should be able to find a base sheet that fits your client's bed well. In fact, the base sheets range from the WendyLett Lined 200cm x 90cm Fitted Base Sheet Sliding Aid ROMP1641, which is 90cm in width, to the WendyLett Lined 200cm x 360cm Extra Wide Base Sheet Sliding Aid ROMP1681, which is 360cm in width for extra wide beds!

The WendyLett base sheets also improve the efficacy of the WendyLett 2Way and 4Way sheets as they provide a soft and silky sliding surface for the draw sheets to move across. This helps ensure you're able to move your client as best as possible and into as comfortable a position as possible without too much effort.

WendyLett 2Way Sheets

The WendyLett 2Way Base Sheet Can Move Sideways

The WendyLett 2Way sheets feature a lined design

If your client simply needs help sliding sideways and can pull him or herself up in bed, choosing from our range of WendyLett 2Way sheets is probably an ideal solution to your needs. These sheets also reduce the likelihood that your patient will move down the bed during use as they prevent your client from sliding down. This is particularly ideal if your patient is susceptible to uncomfortably moving down in bed during the night.

WendyLett 4Way Sheets

WendyLett 4Way Sheets are Checked for Easy Differentiation

The WendyLett 4Way sheets feature a checked design

In comparison, the WendyLett 4Way sheets can be moved in four directions: up, down, left and right. When placed on top of a WendyLett base sheet, the 4Way sheet is able to move fluidly over the base sheet while you move your client. Combined with a base sheet, this is perhaps the most powerful of the draw sheet types as it allows you to perform procedures like turning your client in bed, moving them higher or lower, or else adjusting them into a more comfortable position.

As a result, the 4Way sheets are even suitable for use with heavier or more passive users. The function of the sheet also makes it possible to perform gentle and comfortable transfers for those who are in pain. This makes the range highly versatile, allowing you to tailor the support you provide your client according to their needs.

How Do I Tell the Sheets Apart?

Designed with a self-instructing pattern on each of the different sheets, you can see at a glance what kind of care your patient requires simply by looking at the sheets on their bed. The base sheets are designed in either pure white or grey with narrow white stripes on the edges and a silky smooth middle section for easy turning. In comparison, the 2Way sheets tend to be lined with narrow grey stripes that move in the direction you can move your client. This differs from the 4Way sheets, which are checked to represent the fact that they can be moved sideways, upwards and downwards.

Don't Forget About the WendyLean Pillow!

The WendyLean Sliding Pillowcase with Handles Keeps Your Client Comfortable

The WendyLean pillowcase helps you move your client higher up in bed

The WendyLean Sliding Pillowcase with Handles ROMP1680 is also an excellent solution for helping you move your patients higher up in bed or into a seated position. As the underside of the case is made from smooth material, it can move fluidly over a WendyLett base sheet. The support also features a strong handle on each side for added grip and therefore improved safety during the moving process.
