SafetySure Transfer Sling


SafetySure Transfer Sling (SST Sling) is a small and easy to use device with many applications.  SST Transfer Sling is used primarily to:

  • Move from or to a bed

  • Move up in bed

  • Raise or lowering

  • Lift from the floor to a wheelchair or bed

  • Wheelchair to car and back

  • Move higher up in a wheelchair

  • Transfer between bed and wheelchair and back

  • Turn in bed


The SST Sling is easy to put in place and use. The high friction coating on the patient side prevents slipping.  The two handgrips on either side allow a variety of grips for a good working position.  SST Sling is easy to carry and store.


The SST Sling can be positioned in numerous ways, depending on the transfer to be completed and the circumstances of the patient.

Moving from or to a bed

When helping someone to lie down or sit up in bed (fig. 1), it can be hard to reach the shoulders and the legs at the same time.  The SST Sling is of great help in this situation.  Place it around the lower legs and/or behind the shoulders (fig. 2).


If you are helping someone get up or sit down, tilt the patient forward for a natural transfer.  Those who are unable or reluctant to bend are often heavy.  By putting a SST Sling around the hips, you can take on the weight of the patient along with your own body weight (fig. 3 and 9).  If the patient is resistant to forward movement, place a SST Sling around the shoulders and a SST Belt around the waist (fig. 4).

Moving up in bed

When moving a patient up in bed, most of the weight is usually on the hips.  By putting the SST Sling next to the hips (fig. 5), you obtain a good grip and a better working position.  A SST Slide Small may also be placed under the head and shoulders (fig. 6).  The patient then slides upward more easily and is able to help out by pushing with the legs.

Lifting a patient from the floor to a wheelchair or a bed

If a light patient falls out of a wheelchair and is unable to get up, a SST Sling is of great help.  Place the SST Sling under the patient's buttocks.  Support the patient's back with your free hand (fig. 7).  SST Sling also provides a good grip around the legs when a SST Gurney is being used for lifting a patient on to a bed (fig. 8).

Moving up in a wheelchair

If the patient is weak and has slipped forward in the seat, the SST Sling will take weight off the patient's buttocks while you push against the patient's legs/knees to move him/her back into the seat (fig. 9).

Transfers between wheelchair and bed

A combination of products may be the best solution when performing an uphill transfer of a heavy patient who is unable to stand.  In this example a SST Board, a SST Belt together with a SST Sling make a big difference (fig. 10). After the transfer, the SST Sling allows helpers to arrange the patient comfortably in bed (fig. 11).

Turning in bed

When turning a patient in bed, the hip is usually the heaviest part of the body.  The SST Sling provides low friction and a good grip (fig. 12).
