Product Buying Guides


The Full Body Sling is an easy sling to use while transferring the resident from bed to wheelchair, toilet or shower-chair or from the floor to a bed. It offers total head and neck support and the padded lower section provides additional under-thigh comfort and support. Use the full body sling for residents who are totally dependent, partially-dependent, non-weight bearing, very heavy or have limited head control. Use this sling for amputee residents (in a reclinded position). Choose from solid polyester fabric or bathing mesh, with or without commode opening. The mesh sling may be used for bathing or when the sling will be left under the resident. The solid polyeser sling should not be left under the resident for extended periods because the padding retains body heat. Residents may be seated on “pressure-reduction” cushions.
