The Band Sling is a single patient use disposable sling that can be used with overhead lifts or mobile lifts.
The Band Sling is designed to assist health care staff with the support and positioning of limbs. Providing proper limb support can assist staff with wound dressing, wound preparation, leg/venous wrapping, foot care, cleaning and a variety of other care related tasks.
The National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON) recommends that limb lifting be limited to a maximum of 11.1 lbs. The average weight of a 200 lb. patient’s leg is approx. 35-37 lbs.
It is important the sling be applied as to reduce the risk of skin irritation during the application process. Follow the instructions on the instruction sheet delivered with the Band Slings.
