Main Features:

  • Great manual lifting Sling
  • Slippery, breathable material

Sometimes it is not possible to use a mechanical lifting hoist when away from home. Some examples could be going on a picnic, going to the beach, lifting people into boats, or even going camping. The Handi Sling will help open new horizons to enable people to be more active in many ways, without the necessity of having a mechanical hoist to lift them.

When designing this Sling we were very mindful that it is against Manual Handling principals to manually lift people. Before using, a risk assessment should be undertaken , including weight and cooperation of the Client and the ability of the Carers. Any instructions, suggestions, or Videos are purely a guide. Manual Handling Trainers knows the abilities of the people doing the lift and the person being lifted. They may alter our suggestions to suit the Carers and person being lifted.

If the Sling is left under the patient for some time it may be necessary to use a Lap Belt that is attached to the chair, as the patient may move and slip on the sling material. Some standard Pelican Belts are Lap/Shoulder Strap Belt, Lap/Shoulder Strap Belt Hook & Loop Tape Fastening.

Note: The Hook & Loop Tape Fastening Belt may not be considered to be a restraint if the patient has the mental and physical ability to undo the belt. The Chair Belt for Sliders gives better security in helping active patients from slipping down chairs. These are designed to prevent slipping off chairs.

Material Photo Type Notes
All Day Sling Material
Nylon A strong, thin material with a Rip Stop thread in the material, to help reduce or prevent ripping. As the material is breathable the Slings can be left under the patients sitting in chairs. This reduces the need to remove the Sling after the patient has been hoisted into a chair, and then replace the Sling to pick them up again.

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 If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.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