Opera® Comfort High Sling with Split Legs
The Opera® Comfort High Sling with Split Legs is an in-situ sling for high dependency patients who require additional head support. To ensure maximum patient comfort when in- situ, head support stiffeners can be removed and the split legs can be easily folded away to prevent heat build up. The sling is well suited to transfers to and from the floor and flat surfaces (e.g. in multi-sensory rooms).
Embroidered label with laser-etched serial number
The Opera® Comfort High Sling with Split Legs is made with a durable, embroidered specification label. Sling details are stitched and the serial number is laser-etched meaning the label is indelible and will not fade when washed. This ensures the sling will never fail a LOLER test as a result of a faded label.
Triple-stitched lifting straps ensure safety
Each lifting strap on the Opera® Comfort High Sling with Split Legs is securely fastened to the main body of the sling at three points. This triple-stitch method ensures durability and maximum patient safety.
Manufactured in the UK
The Opera® range of slings are manufactured in the UK ensuring high quality standards and trustworthy manufacturing methods.
The ends of the lifting straps on the Opera® Comfort High Sling with Split Legs are covered with additional pieces of material to reduce skin shear and abrasion.
