The AmputeeSling can also be used to lift people who are not amputees but who have a tendency to slip out of other similar slings.

The sitting posture is slightly reclined. The leg supports are normally applied parallel to each other under both thighs, but in some cases it may be more appropriate to lift each thigh separately.

Model 75 has a head support.

Recommended especially for

  • Patients with high, double-sided leg amputations.
  • Slender patients with a tendency to slide out of other slings.
  • Patients with contractures (also foetal position).
  • Patients who are not allowed/unable to bend 90° at the hip. (With crossed leg supports and side bars)


Before lifting, keep the following points in mind:

Sizes Medium and Large are relatively small, i.e. Medium fits a slender person.
The AmputeeSling can be specially ordered in any of the fabrics in our assortment.
More information can be found in the Instruction Guide (refer to "Document" under Resources Tab).



As an alternative to the AmputeeSling and for lifting leg amputees, many of Liko's slings can be used, depending on the degree of amputation, sling application and type of lifting situation.
