Advice & Tips: This is easy for the patient, but takes a bit of time and practice for the caregiver to learn how to use... and how to get the sling well positioned. For that reason, it cannot be done quickly, which is sometimes hard for me. I'm able to help my caregivers by getting into an easier placement on the bed. I can sit on the edge, hold onto the rails and help. Eventually I will be lying down, but they'll be able to get the sling in position. It will just take longer. This type of (floor) lift takes up space wherever it is kept.
