Technically advanced transfer sling designed for end users who suffer with extreme extensions
A highly technically advanced transfer sling designed for end users who suffer with extreme extensions. Originally designed as part of the Paediatric range this sling has also been adapted for adults. The Silva-Tinkham adult sling has been manufactured to ensure a safe transfer for those end users who have been known as ‘escape artists’ and have difficulty in maintaining any body control or those who have extensor patterning.
It is a fully supportive divided leg sling and features a wrap around thoracic section, designed to fit firmly around the body, with clunk-click buckle which allows the user to "wear" the sling. It features a soft padded neck roll and head support. Hip tapes supplied as standard with provision for a 2nd set of hip tapes. Two modesty straps supplied, one alongside the inner leg tape and one across the width of the leg.
The Silva-Tinkham was initially designed for the Ellen Tinkham School and is consequently named after this wonderful and inspiring school.
