The critical connection between patient and lift.
The patient lifter sling is a very important component of any lifting system. Too often, very little time is spent on selecting the proper sling and the end result is usually less than satisfactory. Using the wrong sling can be both dangerous and uncomfortable for the patient and very frustrating for the caregiver. The 3 factors that must be taken into consideration before deciding on a sling are as follows:
a) The desired functionality
b) Any special physiological conditions of the patient, and
c) The patient's weight
In many cases more than one type of sling is required to maximize the usefulness of the lift.
The Combi Sling
Our most popular sling, the Combi is very versatile and extremely comfortable. It features a built-in head support and padded legs that are divided to allow for easy application and removal. br>
Available in standard solid fabric or mesh for bathing, the Combi is suitable for bed, chair, floor and tub transfers. Sizes range from pediatric to triple oversize. Custom sizes also available.
The Long Seat Sling
Designed for single and double leg amputees as well as for patients that prefer a non-divided leg sling, the long seat sling is available with or without commode opening in either solid fabric or mesh.
Sizes available include regular and oversize. Custom sizes also available.
The Hygiene Sling
Specifically designed for toileting and peri-care, the Hygiene sling allows for un-obstructed access to the perineal area. In many cases the patient's pants can be lowered and then raised with the patient in the sling. The Hygiene sling features padded legs and back as well as a snap together chest belt for added safety.
Available in solid fabric and two sizes. Custom sizes also available.
Allows the Ultralift patient lifter to be used as a rehabilitation device for standing and walking. The Walking sling features a sheepskin covering for added comfort and locking buckles to ensure a safe environment for both patient and caregiver.
Available in one standard size as well as custom sizes. br>
This cover works in conjunction with the Harness Deluxe (included w/ purchase of Steady Aid). This is ideal for patients who can bear less than 20% of their body weight or have unpredictable days. The cover attaches to the harness and goes through the patient's legs to give them more stability and comfort when using the Steady Aid.
This sling enables the caregiver to reposition or roll a patient in bed without manual lifting.
This can be used with the Stratus Ceiling Lift or the Ultra Lift 1000.
