Specifically designed for optimum patient comfort the Silva Repositioning Sling has been constructed with reinforced tapes from the side of the sling – removing the necessity of webbing straps running completely behind the patient making this repositioning sling even suitable for use with those patients who have skin integrity issues. Can be used as part of the bed make-up when used in combination with a draw sheet.

Repositioning 1

The sheet can be used in a side-lying position to facilitate a ‘log-roll’ movement which will give access for personal care, to change patient’s position for help in assisting with pressure management and is also useful for changing soiled bedding. Can be used with a slide sheet positioned underneath the repositioning sheet to help with the glide and ensuring that the patient is positioned correctly back into the centre of the bed after the turn.

Repositioning 2

Straps are attached to the spreader bar, patient should be slowly lifted and levelled correctly before repositioning. This procedure will help to assist the caregiver in repositioning the patient higher up the bed.

Repositioning 3

The positioning sling comes with eight tapes plus two head support tapes, which when fully attached to the hoist, creates a supine transfer sling useful for lateral transfers from a bed/stretcher to an operating theatre or diagnostic table.

Polyester – Easy application. Glides and slides smoothly, dries quickly after washing. Mesh – Ideal for shower trolleys and chairs.
