Hygiene Slings

Hygiene slings are specifically designed for toileting and hygiene functions. Access is unrestricted for most users, making this sling ideal for independent transfer and toileting. The hygiene sling is designed to be used with either a patient lifting hoist or a stand aid.

It gives access to be able to remove and refit lower garments for toileting transfers whilst a client is suspended in the sling. 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.

Sizing Guidelines

Prism Medical offers a wide range of standard sizes to be sure to accommodate the needs of a diverse patient/resident population. It is important that the caregiver ensures that there is never strap in contact with the skin. If this occurs, it is often an indication that the sling is too small. Here are some general guidelines for sizing Prism Medical slings.

Prism Medical Canada Sling Sizing Guidelines

Remember to use your best clinical judgment when choosing a sling size which best fits your patient. People come in all different shapes and sizes and two people may weigh the same or be the same height but require different sized slings.
If the patient weighs over 400lbs a sling consultation is recommended. Please call (866) 891-6502

Washing Instructions

The sling should be hand washed because the metal rings and plastic belt buckle may damage the washing machine or vice versa. The sling should be hung to air dry. Warm wash with mild detergent is recommended.

  • Use mild detergent.
  • Set washing machine to Warm wash/cold rinse cycle.
  • Do not dry on steam pipes, conventional heaters, wood stoves, or other similar devices.
  • Tumble dry on air/fluff cycle only, or hang dry.
  • Do not use chlorine based bleach.
  • Do not dry clean.
