U-Sling has Head Support and has 600-lbs weight capacity. Ideal for transfers from bed to wheelchair and wheelchair to commode. The patient's bottom is always open so they won't be sitting on the sling when you set them down (see diagram below).
Sling with Head support is recommended for patients that cannot hold their head up or have little upper-body strength.
This is what the Hoyer U-Sling looks like when in use. (Shown without optional head support) The bottom is open, yet the patient remains comfortable during transfers. The primary benefit is the patient is not sitting on the sling and it is easy to remove from a chair or wheelchair. Other "Hammock" style slings require wrestling with patient weight to remove from underneath them.
This U-Sling also doubles as a commode sling. With the open style bottom, patient can simply be placed directly onto the commode.
