This sit-to-stand transport sling is designed to be used for simple transfers or transporting the patient longer distances using a sit-to-stand type of patient lift.
The sit-to-stand transport sling is designed like a divided leg sling or U-sling by providing back support up to the shoulder area and under the thighs. The sit-to-stand transport sling is used to transfer totally or partially dependent individuals in a seated position. The transport sling provides patients with a safe, supportive and comfortable way to transfer from a seated position in and out of bed to a chair, wheelchair, toilet or from chair to chair.
