When to replace your slings

link back to the home page


The best time to replace a sling is before you see signs of wear or damage.

We suggest replacing any sling that shows even the slightest signs of wear or damage right now!

A few signs of wear, indicating it’s time to replace your sling, include:

Inspect every sling before every use, discarding slings with any damage. Review all slings intensely every six months. 

We suggest having a few extra new slings in a variety of sizes on hand incase you need to replace a sling immediately. We offer quantity discounts to help you with this process.

Sharing Slings.

Every resident using a sling should have his or her own slings for proper sizing and infection control. Using a sling that is the wrong size may cause injury or death.

It’s best to not share slings between residents to help control infections. Consider individual slings for each person in the areas of transporting, toileting, and bathing.
