The Universal High Sling supports the whole body and the head, giving the client a comfortable and slightly reclined position. The Invacare Universal High Sling is typically used for those who have limited control of the head, trunk or hips – or for transfers to and from a lying position. It can also be used for seated-to-seated transfers. The head support on this sling can be removed by simply removing the plastic rigidisers in the head section.

Developed in coordination with physical and occupational therapists, this sling is ideal for transfers to and from a lying position, or for transfers from one seated position to another.
