The Guldmann Basic High – Kids sling is a general lifting sling suitable for a wide variety of users and lifting operations. The sling supports the entire body including the head. The internal belt provides extra support and safety. The Guldmann Basic High – Kids lifting sling is available in several sizes and two different materials.
It is important for healthcare facilities to have a wide range of sling sizes to accommodate for a wide range of patients including small adults and children. The size of your sling will significantly impact the comfort level and safety of your patients and residents during transfers. If a hoisting sling is too small, then it could be tight and uncomfortable in certain areas, increasing the risk of resident injury. On the other hand, if the sling is too large, then a person could simply slide out of it, leading to yet more injuries and accidents.
The Basic High Kids slings also come in a wide variety of different materials. Polyester is the most common material used for slings, as it’s hard-wearing and heavy-duty in nature. On the other hand, mesh slings are generally more appealing for hygiene slings and other hoisting tasks where the patient may need plenty of breathabilities and access to air or water.
