The Silva Floatation Sling is manufactured from a soft mesh material and has detachable tapes with colour coded pick up options for loop fixing hoists only. It features a foam neck roll for additional bouyancy of the users head and also has a waist support with connecting groin strap for client security. A soft padded roll at the base of the sling aids user comfort. These patient slings are ideal for transferring a user into a hydrotherapy pool and help to provide additional confidence in a pool environment for both the user and carer. The Silva Floatation Sling reduces handling needs whilst still fully supporting the user whilst in the therapy pool.
Safety: This product is not a lifesaving piece of equipment and it should not be treated as such. It has been designed to assist with transfers into the pool and to provide support and aid buoyancy whilst in the water. The user should be accompanied at all times when using this product and never left unsupervised.
This sling is non-refundable/returnable
