Sling Selection

Call DME Shoppe for help


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.
