The Freeway Dual Access toileting sling by Prism Medical UK is a multi-purpose sling designed to be used with a ceiling track hoist, mobile hoist or standaid.
It gives access to be able to remove and refit lower garments for toileting transfers whilst a client is suspended in the sling. The sling features a padded back panel with non-slip surface for extra support with cut away sections reduce pressure underneath the arms. The sling has a well padded leg section to reduce pressure under and between the legs for maximum comfort.
Having a Velcro and buckle fastening for the chest band provides extra security and allows the chest band to be adjusted before/during the lift. As the client is lifted and their position becomes more extended, the ability to adjust the tension on the chest band is an important feature for the comfort and security of the client.
The optional side retention straps are an additional aid to help prevent the leg and back sections of the sling from separating too far apart therefore helping the client to maintain a better position in the sling. The side retention straps offer additional support and possibly extend the suitability of this type of sling for those who generally do not have the muscle tone to use a toileting sling successfully.
