- Padded leg straps
It is very good to ambulate patients in a safe way. However it could be dangerous for both patients and Carers to manually hold someone if the patient falls.
The Walking Sling can give the patient confidence and security that they will not fall over. The normal overhead hoist can assist the patient to stand. If the patient cannot continue to stand, they will be supported by the sling & hoist.
This item can be used when the person is using a walking frame.
Safe Working Load: 300kg /660lbs (Weight Tested To 1000kg / 2200lbs, exceeding ISO 10535:2011)

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. Keep the Velcro Hook section closed when not in use and when washing.
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 If any damage is found the Sling must be withdrawn from service and repaired, if possible.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.
