The Original HighBack Sling, model 20, and the Soft Original Highback Sling, model 26, are Hillrom’s most popular slings. Both models provide comfortable, whole-body support suitable for most patients.
The sling design offers a reclined sitting posture for patients with poor head and trunk stability. Model 26 is an advanced development of model 20 and features a pliable “soft plate” for the soft, comfortable support needed when lifting from the recumbent position.
Both models have separated leg supports to ensure that the patient does not sit on the sling after use. Instead, the sling is easily removed from the chair after the transfer. Both the 20 and 26 models are recommended for lifting to and from the floor.
