Patient Lift Slings

Lift Slings are patient transfer slings designed to be used in the home or clinical settings to facilitate safe lifting and prevent injury to the patient and caregiver. There are several sizes and designs available to meet the needs of the diverse population, including bariatric slings to transfer heavier patients. A bariatric sling is reinforced to confidently transfer bariatric patients with a Heavy-Duty Bariatric Lift.

Available Patient Lift Slings

Access Sling for Toileting

Use: Toileting and Hygiene Procedures

This style offers a large opening around the seat to facilitate toileting and hygiene functions.

Example:

  • Invacare Toileting Sling, R121, features a divided leg sling design to create an opening for undressing and toileting needs. The polyester material is washable and has a brushed lining to prevent sliding during the transfer.

U-Sling

Use: General Patient Transport

A U-shape design makes it easier to slide underneath the patient. The minimal U-shape design creates a quick fit application that typically does not offer neck support unless the brand offers options with neck support for when the patient doesn't have neck strength during the lift.

Example:

  • Hoyer Padded U-Sling, 70000, is padded for additional comfort. Depending on the size, it can support a patient's weight up to 600 pounds.

Full-Body Support Sling

Use: General Patient Transport

A full-body sling is also referred to as a square sling since it has higher backing to give head support. When the patient has limited upper and lower body strength and head control, this enables secure lifting in a lying position or seated position.

Example:

  • Invacare Full Body Sling, R112, has a padded lower section and soft brushed lining to prevent slipping and protect the skin at the head and neck.

Full Body Sling With Commode Opening

Use: General Patient Transport and Toileting

A full body sling with a commode opening will provide general transfers and lavatory transfers without having to change the sling type.

Example:
