A Quick History of Black 3D Fabric:
There are two companies that make this fabulous material. Silvalea replacement sling manufacturer (fabric is call Superfine PLUS or Superfine) and Prism Medical (fabric is called, black spacer fabric). Sometimes these slings are referred as
“In-situ” which means they can be left behind your patient/client/resident. This fabric is very popular, not only is it used for slings, it is used in many different products such as clothing, shoes, wheelchair cushion fabric, home and household textiles. Spacer fabric is a 3D fabric that uses two separate fabrics that are joined together by a microfilament yarn. This technology has benefited the quality of patient care over the last 5 years and has decreased muscle skeletal injuries since it can be left behind your patient/client/resident.
