Combined with the Universal Sling design, the Patient Specific Universal Sling with half head Support is a disposable sling designed to help reduce cross infection in Hospitals.
The Universal sling is designed for ease of fitting and general purpose transfer. It can be used to transfer from the seated to recumbent position or from recumbent to seated. The person must be assessed by a competent person who must be fully trained in the suitability, application and fitting of the sling. Carers should always be trained in the use of hoists and slings.
As the name suggests, this particular sling features a half head support, making this ideal for users who require a general purpose sling which offers some extra support whilst being hoisted to and from a supine position.
Although the sling is designed not to be washed there is no restriction on the number of transfers.
The slings are made of a non-woven polyester which will not weaken when wet as other paper based disposable slings can.
When the sling becomes dirty, shows excessive signs of wear and tear or is no longer required it can be disposed of.
