Patient Transfer Slings

Definition : Large flexible soft support devices (also known as slings) that are designed to support the whole body of a patient during lifting and transfer over small distances. Typically, these devices consist of large flexible fabric (e.g., canvas) slings where patients are placed, either by themselves or with partial or total help by caregivers. The slings usually include straps that are wrapped around or attached to the patient's hips, back, thighs, or buttocks to lessen the risk of accidents during patient transfer. Patient transfer slings may be either handled directly by the attendants or attached to the swivel bar of a patient transfer lift; they are used mainly to move the patients for a short distance, reducing the risk of injury to the attendants and the patient.
