How to use the Stand-Up sling?

Stand-Up slings are designed to work with stand-up lifts. They are designed for patients who can support 

the majority of their weight in a standing position.These slings allow full access for quick toileting and everyday 

transfer always check with a physician before selecting a sling. The standing sling is constructed of durable a unique 

full padded fabric that forms a soft yet supportive surface, the soft brushed lining helps prevent sliding for comfort 

and skin protection and it is stretch resistant character helps them hold their shape for superior comfort and ease of 

positioning. Sling sizes are indicated on the labels refer to the sling chart in the owner's manual for dimensions, although 

one lift will work for most patients multiple hook up points adjusts at different body sizes, it is recommended that each resident 

be issued their sling that conforms to their weight, medical condition and type of transfer to be performed before you 

attempt any kind of life make sure that you understand the patient's limitations and their ability to assist with the transfer. 

It's a good idea to communicate with a patient throughout the process Let them know about each step before you perform it 

so that the patient is comfortable relaxed and can help you in any way that they can if you explain each step as you work through it. 

Your patient will learn the routine and become comfortable with it watch as we position a standing sling for patient transfer. Before 

performing the lift, make sure that the bed is at a safe working height for the caregiver. Next, get the patient in a seated position on 

the edge of the bed. use the head section of the bed to raise the patient to a seated position then swing their legs over the edge 

of the bed, place the standing sling around the patient's torso, put it around them so the sling label is on top facing the caregiver and 

the sling label is on top. Facing the caregiver and the inside where the belt is located is against the body. Position the sling 

so that it is at the base of the spine and under the arms to a point just below the shoulder blades. The patient's arms must be outside 

of this sling, buckle the belt around the patient's waist, adjust for a snug but comfortable fit, so the patient won't slide out, then one 

caregiver stays with the patient, the other moves the lift into position to safely perform, the lift legs must be fully open position. Roll 

the lift into position and stop. Once their knees are security against the knee pad, lock the castors to secure the lift for attaching the sling 

and attaching the sling to the lift arms. Let the patient hold on to the handgrips on both sides of the lift, relaxed to lean back into the 

sling, the patient can now be transferred.
