ThoraxSling is a specially adapted sit-to-stand vest that is used in combination with Handicare’s SystemRoMedic™ sit-to-stand lifts MiniLift200 and MiniLift125. It is easy for the caregiver to apply, while giving the user an added sense of security during rising and standing training. ThoraxSling also facilitates toileting.
Together with MiniLift, ThoraxSling provides a very gentle and pleasant sit-to-stand experience. The movement of the lift arm is designed so that the pulling motion ends comfortably in the lower back, which prevents the vest from riding up under the arms.
ThoraxSling is available in two models; one which provides support behind the back (ThoraxSling) and one that also gives support under the seat (ThoraxSling, with seat support), and in several materials and sizes.
Both models of ThoraxSling are available in a durable and easy to care for polyester. These versions also feature armholders for hemiplegic users. ThoraxSling in polyester is intended for users weighing max 300 kg/660 lbs.
ThoraxSling is also available in a wipeable material which can be cleaned using disinfectants. ThoraxSling, wipeable is intended for users weighing max 205 kg/450 lbs.
ThoraxSling, with seat support is also available in a sturdy and durable non-woven material. Instead of laundering, the lifting sling is discarded after use, when it becomes soiled or when the user no longer needs it. This prevents the spread of multi-resistant and other types of infectious bacteria. ThoraxSling, disposable, is a lifting sling for short-term use and for users weighing up to max 200 kg/440 lbs.
