The In-Situ Longseat Slings are manufactured with a padded roll along the edge of the leg area for additional user comfort.

They come standard with a head support and the provision for hip tapes.

The hip tapes are available as an optional extra. This style of patient sling is a full body supportive sling, generally applied on the bed as it does not have a divided leg section.

The client should be hoisted with their legs in a hammock position.

A slightly reclined transfer position and either a chest support or waist support should also be considered with this style due to the open pick up position.

A commode aperture can be added but is not recommended for in-situ use, especially for those who may be prone to pressure ulcers around the sacral area.
