The Oxford Access Padded Sling is a variation of a toileting sling that has been around for decades. The Access Sling helps to facilitate transfers to a toilet or a commode by having good access to lower garments during transfers.
The Oxford Access Padded Sling has a large aperture enabling clothing to be moved for toileting during transfer. The large aperture means that good core strength and tone are required to maintain a safe position. Typically only around 25% of those who are hoisted are suitable for this type of sling or toileting slings in general.
The large aperture on the access sling make the removal of clothing possible during toileting transfers, the sling is generally easier to fit than most fuller body sling due to the bigger aperture.
