Lumex Universal Sling for Patient Lifts

Lumex MS882

The Lumex Universal slings, also called divided leg slings, are the easiest sling to use while transferring a resident from a seated position. These can also be used for lifting from a supine position, making them suitable for most lifting situations. They are an easy-to-fit general purpose sling designed for the majority of users. They can be used for transfers from a bed to a chair, wheelchair, or toilet, chair to chair, or from the floor to a bed or chair.

This sling style is available with or without head support. They are available in solid fabric and mesh styles. Our Hoyer-styles also have a more robust padding in the back and leg for ease of use and extra comfort, especially for those with delicate skin. Hoyer-style head support versions feature a sturdy internal plastic head shell; the shell is removable to facilitate laundering. Universal slings should be used for residents that are totally or partially dependent, non-weight bearing, or bariatric.

Those who have limited head control should use a universal sling with head support. The large commode opening, available on select models, accommodates toileting. Mesh slings should be used for bathing. Lemax universal slings have four or six connection points and can be used with 2-point, 4-point, or 6-point spreader bars. Quality is the hallmark of all Lemax products. Trusted by healthcare professionals and end-users for over 50 years, Lemax features a full line of patient aids and specialty healthcare seating.
