The hammock sling provides maximum support to the sacral area and is used in cases where the universal sling is unsuitable because the patient has poor body tone. The sling can be used in a divided leg or cross over position; this also provides good support for amputees (risk assessment must be carried out for amputee clients).
Hammock slings come with leg and shoulder straps, and feature multiple color-coded loops to accommodate various seating positions.
Prism Medical offers a wide range of standard sizes to be sure to accommodate the needs of a diverse patient/resident population. It is important that the caregiver ensures that there is never strap in contact with the skin. If this occurs, it is often an indication that the sling is too small. Here are some general guidelines for sizing Prism Medical slings.
|Size||Height||Weight (kg)||Weight (lbs)|
|Junior||< 4′||< 50||< 110|
|Small||4 – 5’6″||43 – 68||95 – 150|
|Medium||5′ – 6′||56 – 113||125 – 250|
|Large||6′ – 7′||113 – 181||250 – 400|
|X-Large||6′ – 7′||181 – 218||400 – 480|
