Patient lifting slings play a key role in keeping people safe and comfortable during transfers in a range of settings including homes and hospitals.
Whether patients are moving from a bed to a shower, toilet or wheel chair, Urgoform has a range of high-quality equipment that allows for a dignified, respectful move where safety is paramount. And that’s exactly what every patient deserves.
At Urgoform, our staff have years of experience in the healthcare industry. We supply a large range of patient lifting slings and want every client to find the best product for their needs.
These slings, which attach to mobile lifting devices, are game changers when it comes to patient care. They wrap around the patient’s body, keeping them safe, secure and well supported during transfer. While they significantly reduce the risk of injury to the patient, they also help protect carers and nurses from back injury and other lifting-related health problems.
So what factors do you need to consider when selecting the most appropriate patient lifting slings for your loved one or patients? It’s well worth talking it through with our expert staff, who can advise on the best slings for people of all ages, needs and circumstances. From children to adults, we’ve got you covered with our well-designed slings from leading manufacturers.
