Other Hoyer product(s)
The Hoyer Professional 4-Point Sling is designed to be used exclusively with Hoyer lifts. The Hoyer 4 Point sling goes with the 4 point cradle. A sling is a specially designed and constructed piece of fabric, which is placed under and around a resident before being attached to the spreader bar/cradle of a lift to raise, transfer, and lower the resident. When selected and used correctly, a sling and lift will achieve a safer transfer, reducing the risks associated with manual handling.
In order to be sure the 4 point sling selected will is what you need, first determine the type of transfer task(s) desired, together with the frequency with which they will occur. For instance, a sling that is to be used for toileting will require a commode opening. Hoyer recommends, and Vitality Medical agrees, that an assessment to decide which sling best suits the patient's needs by a qualified professional.
The Hoyer range of slings has been designed with a number of features aimed at meeting varied lifting requirements and applications. Each sling is described briefly below.
This sling is good for Toilet, Chair to Chair, Bed to Chair, and Floor to Bed. The Mesh version is good for Commode to bath. This is a more specialized sling. It allows correct positioning to be made via the 4-point cradle and uses the Securi3 sling connection system ensuring no inadvertent detachment of the sling from the cradle. It incorporates a removable comfort pad for head support and snuggles the resident providing full protection for residents who go into extension or have involuntary movements or behavioral problems. This sling works well for people who are completely dependent upon the caregiver for the use of this sling and anyone else who needs assistance from the floor.
