For active users

The user's functional ability and need for support determine the choice of lifting sling model, but also the choice of application and removal technique. By combining small, simple and effective assistive devices from other product groups in the Handicare line with aids for mechanical lifting, we are able to create many different, individualized solutions for all types of users and for all situations.

Hereunder and on the other pages in this section, we present a few examples. Naturally, our talented product specialists and representatives will be pleased to show you more!

When seated in a chair or wheelchair

 
The user uses ReTurn or the headboard to support himself as he leans forward.
The caregiver holds the lifting sling with one hand and, with the other hand in the application pocket at the lower edge of the lifting sling, guides it down, preferably,
to the user's tailbone.
 
The caregiver pulls the leg supports forward along the outside of the thighs, ensuring that they are equally long on both sides. The user can then place the leg supports under his legs.

From a recumbent position in bed
 
With the aid of FlexiGrip, a user lying in bed can sit up and lean forward from the underlying surface. The caregiver is then able to simply position the lifting sling on the underlying surface behind the user's back.
The centre line of the lifting sling should be aligned with the user's spine.

A user seated in bed can also help to place the leg supports. The caregiver ensures that the user has adequate side support, so that he does not lose his balance and fall from the bed.
