Overview

A properly fitted and carefully applied ComfortSling Plus High will give the patient a good sense of safety, as well as a high degree of comfort and good back support.

The predecessor of the ComfortSling Plus High, the Liko Comfort HighBack Sling, has long been a popular sling that now, after a design change, has been renamed. Compared to the earlier ComfortSling, the ComfortSling Plus is wider and longer, which means that sizes now are somewhat larger. Thanks to the new design, the sling now gives the patient better sitting comfort and an increased feeling of security. The changes also mean that the distance to the sling bar has been increased, which can give some patients a better perceived sense of comfort.

The ComfortSling is the preferred choice of many amputees and patients who are particularly pain-sensitive, e.g., rheumatics.

ComfortSling Plus High, mod 350/360, provides for a more reclined posture than the lower ComfortSling Plus, mod 300/310. In combination with Sling Cross-bar 450 or SideBars and extension loops, posture becomes even more semi-recumbent.

ComfortSling Plus High is available in two sizes: Medium and Large. Large is wider and higher than Medium. In this case, choice of size is usually of little importance; both sizes can be used for both smaller and larger patients.


Different Fabrics and Designs

The ComfortSling can be ordered in different fabrics and designs. When the sling is to be left under the patient for a longer period after completion of transfer, we recommend cotton or net polyester.

The ComfortSling is available with a padded seat (synthetic sheepskin) for patients who are sensitive to pressure.

For bathing and showering, there is a plastic-coated net version, which allows water to pass through; it can be wiped off and dries quickly.

For lifting to and from the toilet, we recommend the ComfortSling Plus High with Hygiene Opening, mod 360. See "Product List - Slings" under Resources Tab.

 

Recommended especially for

Pain-sensitive patients needing to sit reclined in a semi-recumbent position. In that case, it can be difficult to remove and then re-apply the sling.

 

Before lifting, keep the following points in mind:

  • Model 360 can be specially ordered with a smaller hygiene opening.
  • More information can be found in the Instruction Guide.
