What is it?
The Silva Travel-Lite ® is the latest innovation from Silvalea. Building on our ethos of independence and quality of life for all, this dual-purpose sling helps carers and end users to reduce the manual handling issues around travel, days out, Changing Places and much more.
The Silva Travel-Lite ® is both a manual and hoistable sling in one. Simply turn the sling inside out to create a handy backpack. Store behind the wheelchair or wear over your back.
Manufactured in our exclusive Superfine COOLMAX® fabric – COOLMAX fabric is designed to move moisture away from the body and enhance fabric drying rate thus keeping users feeling cool and dry
The Silva Safety-Slot® is provided on the hoistable option, eliminating potential trip hazards and reducing the risk of the tapes catching in machinery.
The sides of the sling draw-up creating the perfect cocooning effect to create a safer and more comfortable transfer both in manual and hoistable transfer mode
