Reduces Manual Handling as no need to remove the Sling or refit when lifting out of the chair
Less stress for patient
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.

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 If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.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.
