Slings

The right sling for every circumstance

Persons who are unable to control their head or who are otherwise contraindicated for use of the body support will benefit from the wide range of SUREHANDS® slings. The innovations and safety controls found in our other products are readily apparent in this quality range of slings.


 

 

Standard/Contour Sling

 

Provides complete support, which makes it suitable for all users

  • The bottom remains free
  •  Variety of options available to meet individual needs
  •  With or without head support

 

The standard/contour sling is for universal use. It fully supports the body and has a cut-out for toileting. The sling is attached to the four point spreader bar with four loops. The padded legs feel soft and offer ideal support at the same time. Positioning handles are sewn at into the back of all our slings. The standard/contour sling is available with or without a crescent shaped head support. When more targeted head support is required, the six strap models are ideal.

 

 

 

 

Daylite™ Sling

 

Parachute fabric Sling

  • Offers complete support, suitable for all users
  •  Parachute fabric is comfortable, it is a light, thin, soft material
  •  The Smooth fabric is highly air-and moisture-permeable that helps prevent decubitus ulcers
  •  Available from XS to XL

 

Based on the standard contour sling, the DayLite sling is made of a parachute quality nylon that is very strong but with a smooth and soft texture to help prevent skin irritations. The exclusive thin fabric allows it to comfortably remain under the user as it actually wicks moisture away.

 

 

 

 

Hygiene Sling

 

Suitable for all transfers, and ideal for the toilet

  •  The user’s trousers can be lowered while the user is supported by the sling.
  •  Includes a waist belt with Velcro closure for added safety and support.
  •  Easy to fit.
  •  With or without head support.

Sometimes referred to as a toileting sling, this model is especially designed to make toileting possible while in the security of the sling. The large cut-out area behind the thighs and up the lower back allows access to the clothing so the user’s pants can be removed while he or she is in the sling.
