Sizing Guidelines

Universal slings should be assessed for the proper size by utilizing the point at which the shoulder strap attaches to the sling body. This point should:

  • Height: Fall between the deltoid point and the top of the ear
  • Width/Circumference: Fall between the anterior crease of the shoulder (point at which the deltoid muscle and chest meet) and the center line of the body

The need for head support, when using the Universal sling, needs to be determined. The leg straps should also be assessed to determine if there is an appropriate amount of material available, to ensure comfort of the sling.

Prism Medical Canada Lift 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 inserted into a washer/laundry bag prior to being placed into the washer. This is to prevent any unusual wear and tear of the sling by the agitator and/or other parts of the washing machine.

  • 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.
