What is it?
The Amputee Pocket is an adapted version of the Silvalea Convenience Sling with padded rolls. This sling has all the benefits of a convenience sling but is suitable for both single and double amputee users where the amputation occurs above the knee.
The leg tapes are adjustable with sliders making this sling suitable for high or through hip amputations. With maximum comfort in mind this sling was designed with the addition of under arm padded rolls, full padding throughout as well as soft towel lined pocket(s). Used for dressing and toileting, this sling is suited to those with good upper body control. This dressing/toileting sling features a waist support with clunk-click buckle for additional support and safety. As with all dressing slings due to the aperture this sling must be fitted correctly and full patient risk assessment should be carried out.
Loop fixings only.
