Silvalea 062 Manual Transfer Sling - Poly
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE APPROPRIATE TRAINING / EXPERIENCE
IN MANUAL HANDLING OF PATIENTS
cleverly designed, lightweight, manual transfer
for use in a number of situations where the comfort
of the patient and the handling integrity of the
carer(s) is of paramount importance. We found this
sling very easy to use and has, so far, been put
through its paces in the following situations:
Murray from his powerchair:
his bed, chair, or the floor in the tent while camping.....
to his seat on on a long-haul flight.....
onto and off rides at the Orlando theme parks.....
and generally moving him around from one place to
found the sling to be very comfortable
and felt safe while being transfered.
He also found the sling to be to be comfortable
when it was left in situ for long periods of time.
we were on a ride at one of the theme parks, the
ride broke down, stranding us. Everyone was asked
to leave the ride and walk back to the exit. A rescue
team were sent out to evacuate us from the carriage
unit. When the Park rescue services arrived, quite
rightly they asked how to lift Murray from the carriage
- I was pleased to say, "Just lift him in the
sling," (which he was already sitting in).
They lifted him with great ease into the evac chair
and we all eventually emerged from the bowels of
the attraction. One of the Rescue team commented
after the evac how easy it was to use and that all
rides should have a sling like it.

is very easy to use :
to the multiple number of loops on the back of the
sling, the carers doing the lifting may be situated
at either side of the patient or head to toe (particularly
useful when negotiating narrow isles on a plane).
