Diagnosed earlier this year and I am house and bed bound. I’m looking for any help/advice on finding a manufacturer that makes slings with detachable straps. The ones with the large plastic locking device are a bit too much for my sensitive skin, so I am looking for something more akin to hook and loop or similar. Any help would be great, as I have been unable to find find anything yet.
Sorry to hear how much MS has affected your life.
I also use hoists for transfers. I’ve not seen any slings with detachable fittings.
Did you get your slings from Moving & Handling section of Social Services? That’s who got me mine. They would be the guys to ask.
Love Boods xx
Like PBMS says, I’d go back to the people who provided the hoist. Or you could ask for a referral to an OT, who should know (or be able to find out) what’s available.
Thanks folks, I shall get back to them.
