Placement of lifting slings with divided or undivided leg supports – for users who need more support

The user's functional ability and need for support determine the choice of lifting sling model, but also the choice of application and removal technique. By combining small, simple and effective assistive devices from other product groups in the SystemRoMedic™ line with aids for mechanical lifting, we are able to create many different, individualized solutions for all types of users and for all situations.

Hereunder and on the other pages in this section, we present a few examples. Naturally, our talented product specialists and representatives will be pleased to show you more!

When seated in a chair or wheelchair (divided leg supports)

   
   
The caregiver places two EasyGlides, one on top of the other, between the small of the patient’s back and the wheelchair, and then rotates them upwards until they cover the user's back.   The caregiver then places the lifting sling between the sliding boards, and pulls the sling (which slides between the sliding boards) all the way down to the user's tailbone.
The sliding boards are removed
before the leg supports are applied.
  With FootStool under the user's feet, the legs are raised and friction under the thighs is reduced. This enables simpler, more convenient
application of the leg supports.

When seated in a chair or wheelchair (divided leg supports)

   
   
The caregiver places two EasyGlides under the small of the user's back and at right angles to the spine.   The sliding boards are rotated upwards, in under the user's neck, until they are positioned under the user and aligned with the spine.   The lifting sling is placed with the tag facing the underlying surface. The lifting sling is pulled downward, between the sliding boards, all the way down to the user's tailbone.
   
         
Ensure that the lifting sling is positioned centrally under the user before the sliding
boards are removed and the leg supports are applied.
  The caregiver places a ReadySlide under the user's thighs to reduce friction.   The leg supports are then guided under the thighs, between the ReadySlide and the underlying surface, and pulled out from the other side, between the user's legs.

Placement of a SafeHandlingSheet, from a recumbent position in bed, on an examination table or the floor

 
The caregiver places two EasyGlides under the small of the user's back and at right angles
to the spine.
  The sliding boards are rotated upwards, in under the user's neck, until they are positioned under the user and aligned with the spine.
 
The folded positioning sheet is pulled downward, between the sliding boards, until the fold reaches the tailbone of the patient.   The caregiver folds out the positioning sheet by pulling both sides of the sheet under the legs of the user until the bottom of the sheet reaches the end of the bed. Thereafter, the sliding boards are removed.
