The Freeway Hammock sling from Prism Medical UK provides maximum support to the sacral area and is used in cases where the universal sling is unsuitable because the individual has poor body tone. The Hammock sling can be used in a divided leg or cross over position; this also provides good support for amputees (risk assessment must be carried out for amputee clients). The sling comes in a range of materials including Polyslip, Mesh and Spacer.
The sling has a head support option, which comes as a shaped head support on the Polyslip and as a taped head support on the Mesh and Spacer materials.
- All variants except the Spacer have quilted leg sections and no binding on outer leg section for added comfort
- Commode aperture for toileting
- The Polyslip is a polyester sling with a slip fit material on outer leg sections to aid sling application/removal
