Sometimes it can be a lot of hard work. Here are a few new ways to place a sling that we think that you will find both smart and easy. To find all the products demonstrated in the videos please have a look at our website or in our brochure “Lifting Slings”. PLACING A SLING IN BED WITH THE HELP OF A LIFT AND WENDYLETT4WAY WITH HANDLES Turning a user is the hardest part of placing a sling. Here all the hard work is done by the lift. Safe, smart and easy. Read more about WENDYLETT4WAY here. PLACING A SLING IN BED WITHOUT TURNING THE USER, USING EASYGLIDE OVAL. PLUS SIZE USER. Sometimes it is not possible to turn the user when placing a sling. With the EasyGlide Oval it easy to slide the sling in as long as the user has clothes on. If user is placed on a normal sheet you can use the same technique but then place two pieces of the large EasyGlide oval on each side of the user so that the sling can slide down between the two EasyGlides. If the user is not plus size it is enough with 2 pcs of the large EasyGlide oval. APPLICATION OF THE SLING LEG SECTIONS USING A FOOTSTOOL To reduce friction underneath the thighs the user can have their feet on the footrest. To reduce even more friction you can place two pieces of our FootStool. This makes it much easier to place the leg part. REMOVING A SLING MANUALLY WITHOUT CAUSING SHEARING Here you can see how we fold the sling and only pull out the part that is underneath. This makes it easier to remove a sling without causing shearing when the user can not turn over on the side. FULL RANGE OF HIGH QUALITY SLINGS IN DIFFERENT MATERIALS AND SIZES We have slings in many materials: polyester, mesh and patient specific (disposable). The most common material is a durable polyester, but we also use a breathable polyester net, a plastic net for lifting in connection with bathing, and a strong, safe and very practical disposable material. Regardless of which material you choose, you always get a lifting sling that is soft and pliable, yet strong and durable. All Handicare lifting slings, except for those in disposable material, have the same strong and pliable polyester bands in all loops and handles, in suspension loops and as reinforcement in strategic places. Handicare lifting slings are available in sizes ranging from XXS to XXL. The smallest sizes fit children and small adults, and the largest sizes fit large and plus size users. The three sizes in the middle of the scale, S, M and L, fit most normal-sized adults. We also have special lifting sling models in XXXL and XXXXL for extremely large and heavy users. A more detailed overview, with article numbers and measurements for all sling models in all materials, is featured on our website or download our Lifting Slings brochure.
