The age range shown is as a general guide and you should consider whether your child/young adult is large or small for his/her age. The design of the sling is very accommodating, catering to a range of different sizes of individual, hence the overlap between models. All child models have a safe working load of 10 stone (140 lb; 63 kg.), the Young Adult model has a safe working load of 20 stone (280 lb; 127 kg).
Although the sling is intended primarily for manually handling without a hoist, the addition of hoist straps enables the sling to be used with a patient handling hoist of the type that has a spreader bar (not models with a clip attachment). The compact bag is a convenient way of taking the sling and hoist straps with you.
Note: Shipping to UK only.
The bag is sold separately. Please ensure you read the Instructions of Use leaflet provided with the sling before usage.
