Patient Transfer Slings, Manual Assist

Definition : Patient transfer slings designed for patient handling by attendants. Typically these slings consist of a flexible fabric (e.g., canvas) band that gives the caregiver an extension, providing extra leverage and a better grip around the patient's hips, back, or buttocks. Only one caregiver is needed if the patient is capable of supporting at least part of their own body weight. For completely disabled patients the sling can be used by two caregivers to lift the patient as if he or she were seated in a chair.
