What is it?
The Low Convenience patient transfer sling is similar to the Silvalea Low Back Sling, but has been designed with less shoulder support; allowing for transfers to be made with the end users arms on either the outside of the sling or the inside. The sling has a less restrictive approach allowing for a greater feeling of freedom for end users.
This transfer sling gives enhanced support for the lower back area and is specifically for end users with good upper torso stability.
Manufactured in structured Polyester, with a semi-rigid foam lining to the back and legs with removable stiffeners. Suited to end users with good body tone and sufficient control of head and upper body. This sling also features a detachable elasticated waist support as standard.
Large opening around lower body ensures hygienic toileting and makes clothing changes easier. Quick to fit, this sling is extremely comfortable.
