Sizing Guidelines

Universal slings should be assessed for the proper size by utilizing the point at which the shoulder strap attaches to the sling body. This point should: 

Height:  Fall between the deltoid point and the top of the ear 

Width/Circumference: Fall between the anterior crease of the shoulder (point at which the deltoid muscle and chest meet) and the center line of the body

The need for head support, when using the Universal sling, needs to be determined. The leg straps should also be assessed to determine if there is an appropriate amount of material available, to ensure comfort of the sling.

Sling Leg Band Configuations

Divided Leg "Crossover"  Provides optimum comfort and security. Leg loops are crossed between individual's thighs before passing leg straps through them.  (see picture)

Closed Leg  Individual's legs are together before passing leg straps under them. Leg loops are crossed under individual's thighs.

Washing Instructions:  The sling should be inserted into a washer/laundry bag prior to being placed into the washer. This is to prevent any unusual wear and tear of the sling by the agitator and/or other parts of the washing machine.
