Positioning Sling – Side Positioning

Positioning sling is used to position or turn patients before, after or during surgical procedures. The sling is designed to be used in conjunction with a Guldmann ceiling hoist system.

From a supine position the side positioning function will lift, while caregiver can slide pt. at same time to result in a centred side lying position. This can be quite effective on narrow surfaces.

  • Avoid manually lifting.
  • Avoid friction / shear on the patient’s skin.
  • Allow a smooth and controlled turn of the patient.
