Sling Sock is a padded cover with a smooth outer and inner side which is used when the leg straps of the sling sheet are being positioned. The leg straps become easier to guide in and pull out under the user’s legs in both lying and sitting position. Can also be used for the standing sling in order to avoid friction in the armpits. Unnecessary lifting is prevented for the assistant and the positioning of the lifting sling becomes more comfortable for the user. The sling is applied without friction and shear stress is avoided. Sling Sock is available in sets of two, is incredibly easy to use and can be used with most types of sling sheets.
