Opera® Comfort Sling with Split Legs
The Opera® Comfort Sling with Split Legs is designed to provide high dependency users optimal comfort when in-situ. The split leg design is without aperture and the leg sections can be easily folded away to prevent heat build up, ensuring patient comfort.
Embroidered label with laser-etched serial number
The Opera® Comfort 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 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 ends of the lifting straps on the Opera® Comfort Sling with Split Legs are covered with additional pieces of material to reduce skin shear and abrasion.
