The Bosun Chair Sling Side Straps can be used with the Bosun Chair Sling. They give extra stability to patients who:
- May not have enough trunk control
- Could lean sideways when in the sling
Simply lasso the longest loops of the Side Straps onto the space provided on the webbing belt on both sides of the sling.
Experiment when lifting to get the most appropriate loop section to hang onto the hook on the hoist spreader bar.
The Side Straps are also used to extend the Shoulder Straps on the Premier and other lifting slings. They will allow the sling to pick up from the floor with the patient lying down.
