What transfers can the Universal Sling be used for?
The Universal sling can be used for a wide range of patient transfers. They can include bed to wheelchair transfers, bed to bath transfers and bed to commode transfers.
What Sling materials are available?
Our materials include polyester with slide sheet on the leg sections. This is used for general chair to bed or chair to chair transfers. Our bathing fabrics are generally plain polyester or mesh dependent on skin integrity. We also have spacer and parachute fabrics available for in-situ use. We would however 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 Universal hoist 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 Universal sling is provided with loop attachments unless clip fixings are specified when ordering.
