Pressure point should be softer material not to cut circulation and cause bruising.

My husband has very little mobility due to a condition named Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. This will enable me to get him into the shower.
It seems strong enough to do the job. This will enable me to get him into the shower.
Mesh is scratchy on his skin. Length of straps and sizing of sling seems too big. He is 6 feet tall, weighs 195 pounds so I ordered large, then had to get a medium. different type of material would be easier on skin such as a thin nylon.

We thought she had outgrown her original sling and ordered a medium size; however it turned out to be too big.

My wife uses the sling to give our daughter, who is profoundly retarded, a bath.
If there were some way that we could grasp the effective size of it from the literature, it would be a big help.

The sling is easy to get under the patient; and airy to sit on during the day.

My wife has no mobility and is full time in a Wheel Chair. I use a Hoyer to move her all the time.
It is strong and well made for the intended use.
The top sling straps are not separated in 3 individual sections but are made as only one thus the patient is not picked up in a good sitting position. The black straps are too rough. They should be a smoother nylon strap. The head support is way too big and gets in the way. I removed it and tied the strap together near the top so it would pick her up in a better position. If slings were returnable I would have sent this one back.

I purchased a Large Sling. While the Sling does what it is supposed to do effectively, when criss-crossing between the legs, it has left marks
Was purchased to be used daily with Bowel Treatment and Shower after.
The webbing that goes between the legs should be of a softer fabic.

durability - stores well - wash and dry easily and quickly
the plastic head support - we always remove it - too stiff and uncomfortable
