- Reduces Manual Handling as no need to remove the Sling or refit when lifting out of the chair
- Less stress for patient
- Maintains dignity
- Breathable Chair Pad insulates patient from vinyl covered seat
- No need to log roll large patients
- Sling does not crease under patient or slip in chair
The Hammock with Chair Pad Sling has a non-slip backing. The Sling will therefore not move or bunch up under the patient when the patient is lowered into a chair. A special Chair Pad is sewn to the inside of the Sling that will insulate the patient from the vinyl covers. Most fall out or lounge chairs use a vinyl type material which can be uncomfortable and may increase sweating.
If the patient moves around a lot when in the chair, the Chair Pad may be more suitable.
When washing we recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag to help contain the straps.

||This is called a solid material, as it is not a Mesh or Netting material that has holes in the material. The Nylon has some slipperiness, to make it easier to slide down behind a patient’s back, when they are sitting in a chair.
Please select the most appropriate material and sling design for the patient, but remember, if the patient’s condition changes, it may be necessary to use a different material and design of sling. See the FAQ tab for more information.
Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag to help contain the straps.
Warning: Inspect slings before every use. If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.
Disposal: When the Sling is ready for disposal, we suggest the Lifting Straps are cut off, so it cannot be used with another patient.
