Premier Lifting Slings are full body patient Slings with soft padded split legs and a padded head support.
- Full body
- Head support

- Lying, reclined or sitting upright positions
- Instructions on Sling label
The sizes vary from Small Child to Bariatric size, including the medium wide size for most patients that need extra width around the hips.
A variety of materials are available.
Note: The head section is designed to hold the head when in the reclined position. If lifting in the sitting upright mode, it is possible to place a pillow behind the patient’s head. This will give extra support.
Cleaning & Care Instructions
Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag to help contain the product. Store in shade away from direct sunlight.
Warning: Cleaning agents, especially chlorine, bleach, and fabric softener can damage any material, including Sling material. Using such cleaning agents may reduce the life of a Sling.
Lifting Slings Materials
|Standard White||Nylon||This is called a solid material, as it is not a Mesh or Netting material that has holes in the material. The Nylon has some slipperiness, to make it easier to slide down behind a patient’s back, when they are sitting in a chair.|
|Blue Mesh||Polyester||This is a soft and comfortable Mesh with small holes. The holes can be cooler for the patient. Sometimes this material will be used for showering or in a bath.|
|Polyester Blue||Polyester||A comfortable, solid material, like the Nylon material, but not as slippery.|
|All Day Sling Material||Nylon||A strong, thin material with a Rip Stop thread in the material, to help reduce or prevent ripping. As the material is breathable the Slings can be left under the patients sitting in chairs. This reduces the need to remove the Sling after the patient has been hoisted into a chair, and then replace the Sling to pick them up again. Available for all sizes except Extra Large/Heavy Duty.|
Please select the most appropriate material and sling design for the patient, but remember, if the patient’s condition changes, it may be necessary to use a different material and design of sling.
