Universal slings (also called divided leg slings) are the easiest sling to use while transferring a resident from a seated position. These can also be used for lifting from a supine position, making them suitable for most lifting situations. They are an easy-to-fit general purpose sling designed for the majority of users. They can be used for transfers from a bed to a chair, wheelchair, or toilet, chair to chair, or from the floor to a bed or chair.
Universal slings should be used for residents that are totally or partially dependent, non-weight bearing, or bariatric. Those who have limited head control should use a universal sling with head support. The large opening accommodates toileting. Mesh slings should be used for bathing. Slings have four or six connection points and can be used with 2-, 4-, or 6-point spreader bars.
