Mobility Assistance Sling
Protect your back and assist individuals with limited mobility in a safe and dignified way with the Mobility Assistance Sling (MAS). The MAS is a versatile multi-purpose sling, used to ergonomically aid in lifting or assisting individuals with limited mobility. Lifting with the MAS is safer and more dignified for the patient than using improvised lifting aids, such as bed sheets. Multiple secure handholds provide adaptability to any situation and ensure ergonomically correct lifting techniques can always be used. The MAS can be safely used to lift up to 400 lbs per sling (2 Slings provided in each kit). The MAS is constructed from heavy duty nylon and polypropylene webbing with a removable plastic center panel. The semi-rigid center panel aids in easy positioning of the MAS and prevents uncomfortable bunching against the patient.
