My husband has had Parkinson's Disease for 17 years and became bed-bound after an upper respiratory infection.
It's a quality product; sturdy and dries thoroughly overnight hanging it over the grab bar in the shower.
I don't know if I'd call this a weakness, but due to being bed-bound, my husband's skin is fragile. The mesh pattern left some markings on his lower back area the first time we used it. The second time, we lined the sling with a piece of sheet with a cutout and there were no markings.

He is bedridden and needs to be lifted from bed to wheelchair and vise versa. This is the third sling used on him and he likes it better than the othe
It is a net fabric with lots of strong bindings and belt loops.
Don't know how long the net fabric lasts before strethcing. So far, so good.

Late stages of MS.
After a few times in the washing machine, this sling softens up nicely. After only a few uses, learning how to use the sling was simple. This this sling is also very forgiving if you don't quite get it centered, the transfer goes very smoothly.
1. Very stiff out of the package, highly suggest running it through the washing machine several times before using. 2. The back of the sling (I bought a medium for someone who weighs 140 lb) is a little long. It tends to catch on the handles of the wheels chair when removing the patient, which can be a little dicey.

72 y/o male, 165-175 lbs with "mostly useless" left leg and has great difficulty standing.
We have a narrow shower opening and an odd angled shower stall. This shower chair pivots around very nicely in these tight quarters. Patient and caregivers love it!
