What is it?
The Amputee High Easy sling comes with universal clips. This sling is based on the High Easy Transfer Sling with the addition of either a commode filler or bridge, making this style suitable for any length of amputation. The bridge option provides small access for those end users who require toileting. Ideally suited for general transfers or users with poor tone and high amputations. The full body sling features a head support as standard to allow transfers in a slightly reclined position if needed. It is extremely comfortable and supportive, featuring additional padding on the leg sections.
The universal D-anserclip fixing allows for greater hoist compatibility and is suitable for use on stud/clip fixing spreader bars. Simple click on and click off action giving a secure lift to both caregiver and end user.

Polyester – Easy application. Glides and slides smoothly, dries quickly after washing.
Mesh – High density open weave mesh, durable, used for bathing as quick drying. SUITABLE FOR BATHING
