Bariatric Slings

Using an unsuitable sling can compromise patient safety and cause unnecessary discomfort. A broad range of slings is available for use with bariatric mobile lifters and ceiling lifts. An individual assessment covering weight, body shape and other personal factors provides the basis for choosing the right sling.

A standard sling offers good overall comfort and safety. If extra comfort and support are required a sling with reinforced stitching and additional padding may be more suitable. Another alternative is the hammock sling, available in two versions – with or without divided leg. A divided leg hammock sling is sometimes preferred for patients with a pear-shaped body type, as it offers more support for a larger abdominal area.
