A very smart sling label

Prepared for improved track & trace Technology

All Reusable Guldmann slings now have smart labels that incorporate RFID technology at no extra cost. The data embedded in the tag on the label is a unique serial/identification number and includes the date of production.

Unlike printed barcodes, RFID tags do not “fade” or become hard to read, no matter how many times a sling is washed. Depending on which reader technology is utilized, the data can be read outside the line of sight, whereas barcodes must be aligned with an optical scanner.

The RFID tags in Guldmann slings are of the passive type and can be read with most RFID reader technologies on the market.

Helping you be compliant
RFID technology will help you comply with the new ISO 10535 standard, which stipulates that all patient slings must be inspected and approved every 6 months and a log on each patient sling must be recorded.

Comfort, dignity
and ease of use

Guldmann lifting slings are designed with a focus on comfort, dignity and ease of use, and can be used with both ceiling hoists and mobile lifters.

The type and size of the lifting sling have a major influence on the quality of the movement of the individual user.

Guldmann has also designed a number of special lifting slings that cater for each individual’s needs. These include slings for different degrees of body control and muscle strength, the degree of opportunity for active participation, the need for personal disposable slings or other special needs.
