Sling Guide

A Sling Guide is available providing information on the many different sling solutions which ArjoHuntleigh have developed over the years. The guide shows different ways of attaching the slings and provides helpful hints and tools for easy sling selection.

Colour coding for quick and easy size selection

All slings are available in eight sizes to cover the whole spectrum of residents (XXS, XS, S, M, L, LL, XL, XXL).

Colour coded binding, together with a clear label on the reverse of the sling ensures the right sling should always be utilised.

The bariatric sling range is easily recognised by a charcoal grey

Individual Sling Testing

For the safety of both carer and user, every single sling undergoes stringent testing before delivery. An initial visual inspection is followed by a load test 1.5 times the maximum safe working load. Then a final visual inspection is performed. Test protocols are kept for each individual sling.
