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 If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.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