The Oxford Full Back sling is an extremely supportive sling with padded legs and integral head support. The base is gathered to provide extra comfort and the padded legs ensure fabric does not get ‘rucked up’ underneath the legs.
For additional safety and comfort the Full Back has a modesty strap across the leg pieces. It also has a boned head support for support when hoisting from a lying position.
Comfortable and practical
Due to it’s unique shape, the Full Back is comfortable and practical to use. The sling is shaped so that it fits snugly around the user, and will give full protection for patients who go into extension or have involuntary movements or behavioural problems.

Extra Small – 16 – 45kg
