Slings

A sling is used with a patient lift to facilitate the transfer of a person. A sling comprises a specially designed and constructed piece of fabric, which is placed under and around a resident before being attached to the spreader bar/cradle of a lift to raise, transfer and lower the resident. When selected and used correctly, a sling and lift will achieve a safer transfer, reducing the risks associated with manual handling.

  • Universal Slings
    Universal slings are the most commonly supplied patient lift sling for general transfer purposes. Universal slings also refered to as U shaped patient lift slings with 4 or 6 loops. The universal sling fully supports the body and are available in a variety of options including material such as solid fabric, mesh or parachute. Universal slings provide maximum user comfort and are easier to apply than other types of patient lift slings such as full body.
  • Bathing and Toileting...
    Commode slings typically have a fairly small hole cut in the bottom of the sling fabric and mainly utilized for toileting, which usually fully encompasses the buttocks. Hygiene slings are open from the middle or upper back all the way to the back of the thighs just above the knees and are typically made of nylon and or mesh. Hygiene slings are specifically designed for toileting and bathing use
