Standing slings for hoists are designed to assist with the standing process using a specific stand aid hoist or transfer aid. They are suitable for service users with limited mobility but a greater degree of weight bearing ability.
Standing slings allow users to find confidence and improve or maintain strength which enables them to remain mobile for longer. Residents and patients can be raised up from a bed, chair, toilet or wheelchair for transfer or transportation.
Standing slings provide a sense of security and independence for the user and a safe transfer for the carer.
