Nightingale® Lift Slings


Universal Slings

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 Universal sling comes with leg, hip, and shoulder straps, which feature multiple color-coded loops to accommodate various seating positions. The Universal Slings included with the Nightingale® product line are available in a mesh, quilted material or padded fabric. Universal Slings can be supplied with or without head support (H/S).  Nightingale Universal Sling - Prism Medical Home Care

Hammock Slings

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 residents). The Hammock sling is available in either mesh or quilted material.  Nightingale Hammock Sling - Prism Medical Home Care

Hygiene Slings

Hygiene slings are specifically designed for toileting and hygiene functions. Access is unrestricted for most users, making this sling ideal for independent transfer and toileting. The hygiene sling is designed to be used with either a patient lifting hoist or a stand aid. The Hygiene Sling features quilted material and comes with leg and shoulder straps with loops for various seating positions. A wide Velcro strap or buckle across the chest provides additional upper body support.  Nightingale Hygiene Sling - Prism Medical Home Care

Positioning Slings

The Positioning Sling is intended to be permanently in place as part of the bedding. The sling has four pairs of straps and features loops to support the head in various positions. Re-positioning and turning, done manually under time pressure, poses a significant risk of injury to caregivers. The Positioning Sling is designed to address that risk. The sling is also used for transfers to other horizontal surfaces.  Nightingale Positioning Sling - Prism Medical Home Care

Stand Aid Slings

Designed by Prism Medical's expert research team, the Stand Aid sling will comfortably wrap around the resident's waist and with limited pressure and will help raise the individual to a standing position. Stand Aid slings are padded for extra comfort and feature Prism Medical's signature three loop design, which allows for greater options for comfort when performing the lift.  Nightingale Stand Aid Sling - Prism Medical Home Care
