Product Description:

Prism Medical’s hammock slings provide maximum support to the sacral area.  Hammock slings are commonly used in situation where the universal sling is unsuitable because the patient has poor body tone. Hammock slings can be used in a divided leg or cross over position; this also provides good support for amputees (risk assessment must be carried out for amputee clients). Prism’s hammock lift slings come standard with leg and shoulder straps and feature multiple color-coded loops to accommodate various seating positions.

Hammock Sling Features
Color coded loops for identification and noted in individual's care plan for later reference
Covered strap connections points to protect the skin
Sling label serves as a sling information reference
User care plan is supplied with every sling

Additional FeaturesAvailable in either regular, mesh, or quilted material.
Quilted leg sections and no binding on outer leg section for added comfort
Slip fit material on outer leg sections to aid sling application/removal
Commode aperture for toileting purposes for clients not wearing any lower garments

Positions
Inclined:  The greatest angle of inclination is achieved by attaching leg straps to carry bar using shortest
strap loops and back straps to bar using longest strap loops.

Vertical:  Optimum vertical sitting position is achieved by attaching leg straps to carry bar using longest
strap loops and back straps to bar using shortest strap loops.

Sling Leg Band Configurations
Divided Leg "Open" Provides comfortable, secure support and gives good access for personal hygiene.
Divided Leg "Crossover" Provides optimum comfort and security. Leg loops are crossed between individual's thighs before passing leg straps through them.
Closed Leg Individual's legs are together before passing leg straps under them. Leg loops are crossed under individual's thighs

Sizing Guidelines:  Prism Medical offers a wide range of standard sizes for the hammock sling to be sure to accommodate the needs of a diverse patient/resident population. It is important that the caregiver ensures that there is never strap in contact with the skin. If this occurs, it is often an indication that the sling is too small. Here are some general guidelines for sizing Prism Medical slings.

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.
