The sling design offers a reclined sitting posture for patients with poor head and trunk stability. It features a pliable “soft plate” for the soft, comfortable support needed when lifting from the recumbent position.The Highback sling has separated leg supports to ensure that the patient does not sit on the sling after use. Instead, the sling is easily removed from the chair after the transfer.
The polyester sling makes it easy to apply and remove. Since the sling is normally not left in the chair/bed after completed transfer, there are several fabrics other than polyester. The mesh polyester is for those who leave the sling in the chair after completed transfer and desire an alternative that allows for more air flow. For bathing and showering, a version in plasticized mesh fabric lets the water run through and can be wiped dry.
This sling also offers reinforced leg supports which provides comfort, distributes the pressure and prevents the leg supports from creasing under the thighs. Fabric leg supports without reinforcement make the sling more pliable and easy to care for. A soft-padded leg supports (synthetic sheepskin) for especially pressure-sensitive patients.
The design is ideal, when fitted correctly it adapts itself to the patient without any individual adjustments. It is important to choose the correct size to achieve the highest level of comfort.
