Move patients more safely and easily

Lifting patients manually can cause staff injuries. 20% of nurses leave direct care positions as a result of low back pain,¹ creating high costs for facilities.

ComfortGlide Sling

Every time your staff lifts someone to place in a sling, there are back injury risks. Our ComfortGlide Sling can be left under a patient throughout their stay and used as both a glide sheet and a sling.

  • Multiple handles provide leverage for severeal caregivers; sturdy loops for easy attachment to a lift
