The Prism Hammock Sling has been specifically designed for users who require a sling which provides maximum support to the sacral area.
It is often the sling of choice in cases where a general-purpose sling such as the Universal Sling is unsuitable due to poor body tone.
This sling offers great comfort and versatility as it can be used in a divided leg or cross-over position which also provides good support for amputees (subject to assessment).
The polyester mesh version of the Hammock Sling is perfect for those who require a sling for bathing.
The padded sections are made up with non-absorbent foam which helps reduce the soak up of water.
