In connection with their daily care for bed bound residents, caregivers must handle and position the patient several times daily. Proper working techniques are needed to handle the patient manually.
A ceiling-mounted hoist with a repositioning sling can significantly reduce strain on the personnel and create a sense of security for the patient while being moved. The repositioning sling can be left beneath the patient.
The sling can also be used to move residents or patients to a sideways position, to reposition bed-bound patients, to lift the head and body to a half-sitting position, to move patients lying on their backs in bed or to transfer a patient to a bed or stretcher.
The sling can be used together with our standard lifting hanger or cross hangers.
