HoverSling® Repositioning Sheet

Multi-Functional Single-Patient Use Sling and Positioning Device

The HoverSling Repositioning Sheet is a 2-in-1 single-patient use device that utilizes an air assisted matt with a sling to provide a multi-functional approach to safe patient handling. It is equipped with 4 equal length straps that are color coded on both sides. Even placement of the straps on both sides of the hanger bar makes it easy to perform a true supine lift. The HoverSling is compatible with any loop style hanger bar and can be used throughout the hospital with ceiling or mobile lifts. It can also be used with air-assist in departments without lifts, such as radiology and the OR. It is available in 39” and 50” widths to accommodate various patient sizes.

HT-Air Supply (sold separately) offers two airflow speeds, as well as a variable speed option for a gradual inflation, for patients who are sensitive, anxious and/or in pain. Learn More >
