  • Sling Solutions

    Elite Healthcare provide a wide range of slings in both adult and paediatric sizes.
    The sling must suit the hoist spreader bar, whether it is loop or clip attachment and the hoist should be appropriate for the client.  Oxford Presence 4 point Spreader Bar
    The correct sling for the client is vital for safety and correct positioning of the individual.
    The client should be assessed to include their height, shape, weight, tone, trunk and head stability, condition, demeanour, and the task to be achieved.
    From experience we find that poor hoisting is usually down to unsuitable slings and poor technique in sling application.

    The type of slings available in the market place is vast, from budget price to premium price, different types of material to different levels of support.

    One sling does not suit all client types and it is important that the correct sling is selected to include style, size and material and that it is compatible with the hoist too.

    The team at Elite Healthcare has vast experience of slings and are available to  carry out sling assessments with you and your clients.  We work with all types of hoists and have sling solutions for all.

    We also offer training on sling selection and application.
