SLINGS

Human Care offers a broad range of anatomically designed slings developed with the safety and comfort of the patient in mind. Our porfolio includes more than 22 different models of slings offered in a variety of sizes and fabrics to accommodate a vast number of applications and needs.

The right material for the right situation

Choosing the right material is important when choosing a sling since the different materials have unique characteristics suitable to different lifting situations. Using a sling in a robust material with low friction will make the sling easy to apply and remove. When used for bathing and showering, you will need to have net materials that dry quickly and are easy to keep clean. If you want to leave the sling in a wheelchair or bed after the lift is done you need a breathable material and a sling without any reinforcements, handles or paddings. Our slings materials all offer their own unique benefits and features.

Comfort and safety

Our wide range of slings are functional, comfortable and designed for all lifting needs and types of patients. They are available in sizes from Junior Small to XXXL bariatric and are best used together with our unique three-point suspension for optimum comfort and space. The Human Care slings are available in varying styles in order to achieve a safe and comfortable lift in all situations and environments.

Benefits with overhead lifts

The overhead lift is the best possible mobility aid for moving a patient in a nursing environment. Being mounted in the ceiling, the lift allows for the floor space to remain uncluttered. Thus, the caregivers may move around more freely, safely and speedily.

The overhead lift can be installed in any environment and will reach every position in the room – without furniture posing a hindrance. Having all needed prerequisites for heavy lifts at hand saves lots of time, allowing for more – and more cost-efficient – caregiving.

Choosing the right size of a sling

For optimum comfort and safety, it is important to have the right size of sling. A sling in a too small size may provide too less support and can become uncomfortable for the user. For example, it can cut into the groin or risk that the hanger bar comes to close to the user’s head.

With an oversized sling it can be a risk for the user of sliding out of the sling since the opening can become too large.

A sling that is too low or short can provide too little support in the back or neck and can therefore be a security risk. This also means less comfort for the user.

To make it easy to see what size sling has, they have a color mark that varies depending on the size.

Choosing the right material of a sling

Choosing the right material is important when choosing a sling since the different materials have unique characteristics that are suitable to different lifting situations. Often, you want a material that is robust and has low friction which makes the sling easy to apply and remove.

When you want to use the sling in connection with bath and shower you need to have a net material that dries quickly and is easy to keep clean.

If you want the opportunity to leave the sling in a wheelchair or bed after the lift is done you need a breathable material and a sling without any reinforcements, handles or paddings.

I'm no different from you. I might be older, less agile. My legs are slow but my mind is quick. I have a career. Or maybe I've had one. Either way I'm not slowing down. I can keep up. But some things don't come easy anymore. Small things, and some big ones. Appearance matters, I'm still vain. I'm still happy. I know I need some help, even more than just a little. I don't mind as long as it works. But hey, it is what it is.
