The art of choosingSeveral factors contribute in various ways in determining which lifting sling is right for each individual case. Starting with the user and their ability and need for support, but also based on the type of transfer to be performed, first the model is selected, then the size and, after that, the material. Finally, the sling bar and any accessories that may be needed for optimal lifting are chosen. The aim, of course, is to maximize safety and comfort, but by choosing the right model we can also activate the user, and promote their independence and energy, even in different lifting situations.
Trial fitting protocols When you have found the right model, Handicare offers a guide that both facilitates and quality-assures the choice of material, size, sling bar, accessories and placement of leg supports. The trial fitting protocols, which can be downloaded hereunder, are also a means of documenting the decisions and recommendations that apply to each individual user.
