  • Instructions on Sling label

The Premier Lifting Sling is a full body Patient Sling with soft padded split legs and a padded head support. The sizes vary from Small Child to Bariatric size, including the medium wide size for most Patients that need extra width around the hips.

A variety of materials are available (see Technical tab).

Note: The head section is designed to hold the head when in the reclined position. If lifting in the sitting upright mode, it is possible to place a pillow behind the Patient’s head. This will give extra support.

This is a split leg Sling, but Double Amputees including above the knee amputees, can be lifted safely using the No.1 or No.2 leg loops. As the Patient is lifted, they will be in a semi-standing position, with more pressure in the groin and not be slipping backwards out of the Sling, which is a common problem with amputees. The Premier Lifting Sling can also be used in Hammock Style for Double Amputees, depending on where the leg is cut.

Also Available:

Sling Leg Shearing Sleeves – When starting to lift, the Sling leg material under the thighs adjusts itself as it is being pulled up by the hoist. The material may shear against fragile skin. This could cause a wound if it is directly in contact with the Patient’s skin. This padded foam product allows the Sling to move inside the sleeve, without disturbing the Patient’s tender skin.

Sling Inspection Tags (40 Pack)Sling Inspection Tags – The Sling Inspection Tags are fully washable colour-coded inspection tags to help with compliance with the International Standard for Slings and Hoists: ISO 10535: Hoists for the transfer of disabled persons – Requirements and test methods.

Materials Available:

Material Photo Type Notes
Standard White Nylon 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.
Blue Mesh Polyester This is a soft and comfortable Mesh with small holes. The holes can be cooler for the patient. Sometimes this material will be used for showering or in a bath.
Polyester Blue Polyester A comfortable, solid material, like the Nylon material, but not as slippery.
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. Available for all sizes except Extra Large/Heavy Duty.

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 product. Store in shade away from direct sunlight.

Warning: Cleaning agents, especially chlorine, bleach, and fabric softener can damage any material, including Sling material. Using such cleaning agents may reduce the life of a Sling.

Warning: Inspect slings before every use. If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.

Warning: If you are leaving a sling made in the All Day Sling material under a person, always ensure that there will be no adverse pressure care issues. This includes checking that the attachment method (e.g. webbing loops, keyhole plates, etc.), are not positioned in such a way that may hurt the person. The actual material is very thin and it should not cause a pressure problem, but the patient’s skin integrity should be regularly checked, just in case the sling is causing a pressure problem. If there are any early signs of pressure problems, discontinue using this design of sling.

Disposal: When the Sling is ready for disposal, we suggest the Lifting Straps are cut off, so it cannot be used with another patient.
