Presenter: Audrey Webster

Tricky lift and transfer? Is your client’s current sling not working as you had hoped for? Are you thinking custom but not sure of your options? This session webinar will review the common tricky transfers and various solutions to consider related to the client, sling, environment and/or lift equipment. The focus will be primarily on loop-style slings. Various case examples will be explored to apply these concepts.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize common tricky lift and transfers scenarios.
  2. Identify and describe the range of sling options available and corresponding client considerations for use.
  3. Apply sling considerations through use of different case examples.
