For some patients, being able to stand unassisted proves to be a challenge. While they may be able to bear some of their weight, being able to stand independently is not a possibility. The Invacare Stand Assist Sling is designed to facilitate transfers for these people and is suited to patients who are coherent with good head and body control.
If the patient has the mobility to grip the lift boom while transferring, then this is the ideal sling for them. Comfortable and supportive, the Invacare Stand Assist Sling is designed to be used with the Reliant 350 Stand Assist. This listing is for the standing sling only, the Reliant 350 standing hoist is not included and needs to be purchased separately.
This Stand Assist Sling is designed for those who have some weight bearing ability and can support their own body and head during transfer. The patient should have the ability to grip the boom of the lift while moving to ensure their safety and comfort while transferring. The sling is both comfortable and well-padded. The back of the sling is lined with a non-slip material to ensure both safety and comfort while the transfer is taking place.
By not supporting the head, the sling allows the user to view what is happening around them. This avoids dangers and helps to improve safety as the user is aware of their surroundings. Due to this feature, however, the user must have good head and body control to use this sling.
The sling is made from a solid polyester fabric for comfort and security. A standard material that is easy to apply, solid polyester slides smoothly along clothing and dries quickly after washing.
