GBUK Banana Patient Handling Slide sheets


GBUK Banana offers a variety of slings to aid patient handling. Key products include Loop & Clip Slings, Repositioning, and the Lo-Raiser. These are essential tools for safe and efficient patient transfers and repositioning in healthcare settings.

Loop slings, designed specifically for loop hoists and spreader bars, offer a versatile and adaptable solution for patient repositioning. These come in a diverse range of sizes, providing healthcare professionals with options to accommodate patient needs.

GBUK Banana clip slings represent another integral component of our patient handling solutions. Designed with precision, clip slings are equipped with secure clips that attach to hoists or spreader bars, offering a different approach to patient transfer compared to loop slings. The clip mechanism enhances the stability of the sling during transfers, providing an added layer of security.

The importance of selecting the right product

Whether a loop sling or a clip sling — they cannot be overstated in the context of patient care. The choice between these two types depends on factors, such as the patient’s condition, mobility, and the specific requirements of the transfer. The loop slings, with their adaptable nature, are suitable for a range of scenarios, allowing for flexibility in patient handling. The clip slings, with their secure attachment mechanism, offer enhanced stability and may be preferable in situations where additional security is crucial, such as with patients with reduced mobility or complex medical conditions.

Using the right sling is paramount to ensuring the safety and comfort of both patients and healthcare providers during transfers. GBUK Banana’s commitment to providing a comprehensive range of patient handling solutions underscores the importance of tailored approaches in meeting the diverse needs of patients. By understanding the unique features and benefits of loop and clip slings, healthcare professionals can make informed decisions, promoting optimal patient care and contributing to a safer and more efficient healthcare environment.
