For general transfers to support the whole of the body
The Disposable sling is ideal for lifting, moving and positioning users who have reduced control in their head, upper and lower body. It can be used from a seated or lying position, for example from a floor, bed or wheelchair. The Disposable High II is designed to be a general lifting sling to achieve most lifting situations. The sling is ideal for situations in which a high level of hygiene is required, and where there is an elevated risk of contagion and infection.
Patients who can benefit from use slings come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why the slings available from HLS Healthcare come in a broad variety of styles and sizes. To determine what sling size is right for your patient or application, we suggest consulting the Guldmann Sling Lift Sizing Chart, which contains important information related to the physical dimensions of each sling size. As always, we’re here to help if you get need any further information.
In addition to sizing, the sling type itself can be fairly well customised. There are partial body slings, full-body slings, hammock-style slings, and even ABC Slings for kids, which are kid-sized and balanced for use with the same hoist systems suitable for adults.
Just a quick word on the sling/hoist connection: HLS Healthcare provides Guldmann ceiling lift systems that use hangers made from industrial-grade materials with high weight tolerances. These hangers come in multiple formats, from basic, two-point connection hangers, to the Hanger Cross with Connecting Bar. Finding the right hanger to work with your hoist or sling is easy – just contact the team at HLS Healthcare and we’ll help you arrive at the right product for you.
