The Universal-Sling (U-Sling) is the ideal choice for a toileting/commode sling and a basic transfer sling. It is a split-leg design and has an open bottom making it ideal for toileting, bathing, and any transfer from one surface to another. The back is also supported and many have head and neck support.
The U-Sling works best for transferring a patient to a chair since the "open bottom" leaves the patient NOT sitting on the sling. The sling is easily removed when the patient is positioned in a chair. Especially important for patients that will be sitting in a wheelchair or recliner chair for long periods during the day.
