My 17 year old daughter, who has cerebral palsy, is a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan and recently we went to see the show. The wheelchair seats were really far back and my daughter is partially sighted. I therefore booked seats closer to the stage so she could see and the ProMove sling was fantastic. My mum (who is 70) and I used the sling to carry my daughter to our seats, and it was so easy. We are so pleased with this purchase.
I recommend them [Promove slings] in my client reports wherever and whenever relevant. I think they are a brilliant addition to the moving and handling market.
It is one of the best bits of kit we have ever bought.
My daughter has Cerebral Palsy and for her to join in with the rest of the family, my husband used to lift her with a bear-hug to transfer from the wheelchair. With ProMove we can move her together in an easy and comfortable way.
The ProMove sling, allowed safe transfer in areas where a hoist could not be used. This was particularly relevant in the emergency transfer of persons where the individual was being transferred from a wheel chair to an evacuation chair. Previously this transfer was carried out without a sling and involved potential risk to staff carrying out the transfer and the individual being transferred.
The ProMove sling is quite sturdy and well made. We are very relieved to have a safe method to lift/transport our son which won’t result in injury to either our son or ourselves. Thank you very much for this product. I’m certain your company has helped hundreds of people.
Without the Promove sling we wouldn’t be able to help my sister access many activities or places out in society. She loves getting out and about and the Promove literally helps with that.
With the ProMove sling on the market we can no longer justify using a top-and-tail lift in an emergency by claiming there is no alternative
My son has quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy and we go to Florida. I have never seen this sling before and one of our biggest problems is moving him from his wheelchair to the aisle seat and then safely into his seat. We also do not have access to a hoist in America so all transfers are done manually by my husband.
It can be placed into its deployed position while keeping the patient in an upright, seated position thus reducing the risk of respiratory embarrassment.
I am so pleased to know that we have the ProMove sling, and that my son can now be transferred in the ‘plane by three or four people.
