UNI-FIT Sling

The UNI-FIT sling can be used to transfer patients who are unpredictably able to bear weight on their legs, who bear weight too poorly to transfer safely with a sit to stand mechanical lift or who are non-weight bearing. Patients need to have normal to rigid muscle tone and have one intact leg. (Patients who bend forward while being transferred in the UNI-FIT sling, patients who attempt to climb out of the sling during transfers and patients who have loose muscle tone and are at risk of sliding through the small space at the horseshoe area of the sling should be transferred with the one piece amputee sling that has double safety belts.)
