What is it?
The easy access has been developed to provide maximum support during transfer. Ideal for users with poor or no tone, the thoracic straps wrap around the torso to provide excellent back and head support. The aperture is perfect for toileting and provides excellent access. Also ideal for highly active users and those who are hyper-extensive, due to a counter balance strap which means even the most active users are highly supported.
Manufactured using a structured foam back, finished with a light sheen, it is easily introduced, even into tight chairs.
The counter balance strap means even the most active users are highly supported.
As with all dressing slings due to the aperture this sling must be fitted correctly and full patient risk assessment should be carried out before lifting.
