The Universal Sling is the most commonly supplied sling for general transfer purposes. Easy to use and fit, the Universal sling is a multi-purpose sling that provides toileting access as well as good back and thigh support. The sling comes with leg, hip, and shoulder straps, and features multiple color-coded loops to accommodate various seating positions.
Universal Padded Slings are more comfortable and easier to fit.
Universal slings should be assessed for the proper size by utilizing the point at which the shoulder strap attaches to the sling body. This point should:
Height: Fall between the deltoid point and the top of the ear
Width/Circumference: Fall between the anterior crease of the shoulder (point at which the deltoid muscle and chest meet) and the center line of the body
The need for head support, when using the Universal sling, needs to be determined. The leg straps should also be assessed to determine if there is an appropriate amount of material available, to ensure comfort of the sling.
