Invacare Easy-Fit Sling
When transferring patients with severe physical disabilities, it's important to use a sling that provides full body support and positioning. The Invacare Easy-Fit Sling provides you with a safe and comfortable transfer that is suitable for a range of different users, including those with severe physical disabilities. To provide optimal fit and support, the Easy-Fit Sling has been developed in coordination with occupational and physical therapists, resulting in a sling that allows good hip positioning and an upright sitting posture.
The Invacare Easy-Fit Sling is available in five different sizes and two different materials. Select your desired options using the drop-down menus above.
Suitability of the Easy-Fit Sling
Supporting the whole body and head, the Easy-Fit Sling is suited for users with the most challenging physical disabilities. The sling features separate leg supports that can be easily applied and the sling provides good hip position so the user can sit relatively upright. It should be noted that it is important to perform diligent risk assessment before use with severely disabled patients.
Suitable for Amputee Transfers
Another use for the versatile Easy-Fit Sling is for transferring amputees. It is easily applied in both sitting and lying positions for greater flexibility, allowing it to be used for virtually any type of transfer.
Materials of Invacare Slings
Solid Polyester: A standard material that is easy to apply. It slides smoothly and dries quickly after washing.
Spacer Fabric: A slightly elastic fabric that adapts to the user's body shape. It is well suited for those with skin integrity issues. It is important to carry out risk assessment with reference to skin integrity for those who will be seated on the sling for long periods.
