What is a Patient Lift Sling?

A Patient Lift Sling is an essential element of a patient lift and hooks up to the lift by a metal chain, adjustable strap, or reinforced fabric loops. The sling is placed under the patient for a safe and smooth transfer from a bed, wheelchair, shower, or commode. It is sturdy and capable of carrying heavy weights, eliminating any risk to the patient or the caregiver. We offer the best line of medical lift slings to be used with patient lifts. They are slings for lifting patients who are totally or partially dependent, bariatric, or have restricted head control or neck support.

Lifting Slings can be used during transfer to and from the commode, for bathing, and more. There are slings with or without head support, with or without commode opening, and available in different fabric types like polyester, nylon, net, spacer (combination of net and foam), and more. We carry products from established manufacturers like Invacare, Drive Medical, Joerns Healthcare, Bestcare, Chattanooga, and Graham-Field.

How do you choose the Best Patient Lift Slings?

Patient lifting slings are available in different shapes and fabrics. Keep in mind sling width, sling length, and sling weight capacity. These are essential vitals to consider when placing your order to ensure an item is suitable for the patient's build, weight, purpose, and support needs. The material used for the slings is firm yet soft and does not affect the tender areas or fragile skin of the user. Our lift slings for patients are constructed with various materials, configurations, styles, and colors. We carry top brands in patient slings, including Hoyer, Alliance, and Safetysure. Hoyer’s Classics Bath Sling is suitable for around 85% of patients' needs. Its fast-draining and drying nylon mesh makes it ideal for bathing. This Hoyer lift sling is to be used with Hoyer lifts. Choosing the correct patient sling is essential.

How do you use Lifting Slings?

  1. Choose the correct sling: Make sure to choose a sling that is compatible with the patient lift being used and that fits the patient's body size and weight.
  2. Position the sling: Position the sling underneath the patient's body, making sure it is centered and the patient is comfortable. Adjust any straps or loops to ensure a secure fit.
  3. Attach the sling to the lift: Attach the sling to the lift's hooks or loops, making sure the attachment points are secure and the sling is not twisted.
  4. Lift the patient: Use the lift's control to slowly and smoothly lift the patient off the surface, keeping the patient's body aligned and steady.
  5. Move the patient: Move the patient to the desired location, such as a bed or wheelchair, using the lift's controls. Make sure to move the patient slowly and smoothly and avoid sudden movements or jerks.
  6. Lower the patient: Lower the patient onto the surface, making sure the patient is comfortable, and the sling is properly positioned underneath the body.
  7. Remove the sling: Once the patient is safely on the surface, carefully detach the sling from the lift and remove it from the patient's body.

Patient Lift Slings

Sling Buyer's Guide

Kevin Cleary Jan 02,2014

A safe patient transfer requires two things, a patient lift and a sling. There are many variations of slings, all dependent upon a patient’s needs. These slings cradle and lift a person during a transfer between a bed, wheelchair, or


Frequently asked questions

A U-sling is a standard quick-fit, universal sling that works for most of the patients approx. 85%. It is available in all sizes from XS to XL. U-sling is the easiest sling to use for wheelchair transfers because the bottom is open and the patient does not sit on the sling. Simply pull the back support down behind the patient's back and the long leg straps wrap around the thighs of the patient.

A sling with head support is a specialized sling that incorporates more back and head support with padded leg straps. Available in sizes XS to XL. Works best for patient's that go into extension or have involuntary movements or behavioral problems.

The toileting sling has a wide back-strap that goes around the patients back and under arms with a wide leg strap that wraps around the thigh of the leg and up-and-between the legs. This sling does not have head support, the patient must be able to support themselves from above the shoulders. This sling has a commode opening that allows the user to sit on a portable or fixed commode seat without the need of removing the sling.

A split leg design uses wide straps that loop through the legs. This type of sling offers secure patient handling while providing comfortable positioning since the knees are not squeezed together as in a hammock sling.

In case of a hammock sling the patients knees are pressed together and "pinching" in the shoulders occur. Some patients may find the lateral "pinching" uncomfortable or even painful. To eliminate this effect one must consider the divided leg slings.
