Slings use new fabric

Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A new fabric which combines soft elasticity with padded comfort is said to ensure that the Invacare Sling reduces the risk of tissue trauma while providing comfort and security for the user. At each sensitive area there is a double textile thickness with a highly resistant textile film between the layers to ensure even weight distribution. Comfort fabric has also been added to each strap to protect the patient’s skin from shearing, especially during positioning. The slings are washable to 80ûC, reducing the risk of cross infection. The new fabric of the Invacare Sling is said to be extremely hard wearing and allows a maximum patient weight of 200kg. The company says clinical specialists have developed the new ergonomic Invacare Sling range after comprehensive “field trials” to ensure optimum comfort and maximum safety for the patient. Available in six shapes and four sizes, there is a sling to suit most applications. Tel: 01656 664321
