What is it?
The paediatric Manual Transfer sling is designed for tight/inaccessible situations where a sling hoist is not practical such as tight aisles in aircrafts. Handles are provided around the edge of the sling body allowing for the caregiver(s) to lift the end user comfortably and efficiently for short periods of time. The commode aperture is closed with a soft towelling pocket and a modesty and zip across the legs helps to prevent the leg sections from splaying apart during transfer. Waist support with clunk-click buckle for additional user security.
Ideal for travelling.
