What transfers can the Split Leg In-Chair Sling be used for?
The Split Leg In-Chair Sling is a specialist in-situ sling. The Split Leg In-Chair Sling is designed to be left under the patient whilst seated. This can prevent unnecessary distress to the patient as the sling does not need to be fitted and removed each time. It can also reduce the sheer forces on the skin which can be present when fitting and removing the sling.
What sling materials are available?
The sling is made from a 3D breathable spacer fabric which has been pressured mapped to ensure we have the best material to help prevent pressure related injuries. Our standard spacer fabric is a 3mm spacer. We also have a 2mm spacer available for those who require a thinner sling. The 2mm fabric has a lower safe working load. We would strongly recommend a sling without an aperture for all day in-situ use. Slings without and aperture minimise the risk of pressure related injuries caused by seams.
What options are available?
There are 3 head support options available; boned head support, head support with adjustable straps or loops and extensor head support. Waist and/or chest straps are available for additional support. Additional rows of straps can also be added at the hip for example. We offer a full bespoke service and half sizes for those who require alterations to dimensions.
What sizes are available?
Available in 12 standard sizes and bespoke sizes are available. Sizes range from paediatric sizing right through to bariatric sizing.
Our Split Leg In-Chair Sling is available with loop and clip attachments making it compatible with virtually any hoist on the market. We can provide compatibility statements on request. The standard Split Leg In-Chair Sling is provided with loop attachments unless clip fixings are specified when ordering.
