Moving, handling and bathing specialist Prism Medical UK has announced the launch of a new and pioneering Falls Recovery Sling.
The Freeway Falls Recovery Sling allows carers to safely transfer a person who needs assistance immediately after a fall.
Manufactured from low friction material, the sling allows secure moving and sliding of an individual, so they can be comfortably transferred from the floor to a bed or chair.
The Freeway Falls Recovery Sling is incredibly strong and has a maximum weight capacity of 200kg. (31.5 stone). The versatile design makes it suitable for both adults and children.
How the Freeway Falls Recovery Sling works:
The Freeway Falls Recovery Sling allows for the fallen person to be rolled onto the sling whilst in a lying position.
Once moved onto to the sling, the carer can easily slide the person to a more open area if required, for the suitable positioning of a hoist.
The person can then be safely hoisted up off the floor and transferred with comfort and ease into a chair or bed.
Additional benefits and features:
- The sling is machine washable, with space saving storage and integral carry bag.
- To allow for easy use by qualified carers, the Freeway Recovery Sling comes with a step by step pictorial guide.
