The Prism Hammock Sling has been specifically designed for users who require a sling which provides maximum support to the sacral area.
It is often the sling of choice in cases where a general purpose sling such as the Universal Sling is unsuitable due to poor body tone.
This sling offers great comfort and versatility as it can be used in a divided leg or cross over position which also provides good support for amputees (subject to assessment).
The Hammock Sling is available in four materials, each providing a number of different benefits to the user.

The Hammock Sling in polyester/slipfit material is a general purpose sling as it can be used for sitting or everyday transfers between beds, chairs, baths etc. Slipfit material has been fitted on the outer leg section to make fitting and removing the sling easier.
The polyester mesh version of the Hammock Sling is perfect for those who require a sling to be left in place during showering or bathing. Non absorbent foam has been added to the leg sections which helps reduce the soak up of water.
The slipfit version of the Hammock Sling has been designed to provide exceptional ease of fitting and removing. The Hammock Sling in spacer material is ideal for users who have limited ability to move during the fitting of the sling. However, it is not ideal for bathing as it retains water when being hoisted.
The Hammock Sling in spacer material provides the utmost comfort to the user as the material allows a degree of stretch in order to fit around the person. This sling is great for people who require a general purpose sling which may be left in position for prolonged periods of time subject to assessment. Available in pink or black.
