The healthcare industry is a fast-paced space, focused on providing people with a better quality of living. Slings are a great way to be able to achieve tasks quickly, whilst at the same time maintaining high standards of patient care. Slings have a wide range of uses from helping recovering patients getting to and from their beds, to moving people with physical disabilities around their home. Guldmann Slings are one of the most popular products we sell here at HLS healthcare. For your convenience we have outlined three of our most popular slings, these slings are compatible with all our Guldmann ceiling hoist products.
Walking Sling – Guldmann Active Trainer
The Guldmann Active Trainer (gait trainer) is a walking sling for people with sufficient leg strength to stand upright, but who have difficulty balancing. The Active Trainer helps to maintain a standing position and provide support whilst walking. The sling supports the chest and the upper section of the back, while the straps provide support around the hips and eliminate the risk of the user “sliding out”. This walking sling is ideal for the early mobilisation of patients and provides confidence and safety for both user and carer in balance training situations: sitting on the edge of the bed, standing up or actually walking. The Guldmann Active Trainer is available in several sizes and is made from polyester material. The sling can be used with all Guldmann ceiling hoists. On the sling, you will find a label with a QR code leading you to a mobile site containing links to instruction video and user manual. Using the appropriate sling is essential for efficient transfers to ensure comfort, dignity and safety for the user and the care provider.
Amputee Sling – Guldmann Custom Amputee
The Guldmann Amputee sling is designed for lifting and moving people who have had one or both legs amputated above the knee, and for lifting people who have had both legs completely removed. The Amputee model supports the entire body up to and including the shoulders, with added support around the pelvis. The sling can be used from a seated or lying position for example from a floor, bed or wheelchair. During lifts from a lying position, the Guldmann Neck Support Cushion can be used to support the head. The Guldmann Amputee sling is available in several sizes and is made from polyester material.
Toileting Sling – Sit On Comfort High Hygiene
The Guldmann Sit-On Comfort High Hygiene sling is designed with an open bottom section to help for toilet visits. The sling supports the thighs, back, and head and prevents the thighs from rotating inwards during the lift. The adjustable head support can be used as required. The hygiene sling is used for lifts to and from sitting position from a bed or wheelchair, but it is fitted while the user is in a lying position. It is suitable for leaving under the user in connection with toilet visits.The Guldmann Sit-On Comfort High Hygiene sling is available in several sizes and is made from Spacer material. Durable and easy to work with, this material provides extra comfort and is breathable allowing the air to circulate around the body, reducing the risk of heat and moisture forming. The sling can be used with all Guldmann ceiling hoists and mobile lifters.
