Slings are used in conjunction with hoists to support a person while they are being lifted and transferred. Patient care often necessitates lifting or providing body movements to perform day to day activities such as walking, toileting, and bathing. Such tasks involve handling of sick or fragile human beings. Hence, these are more complicated and risky than handling materials in industrial settings. Additionally, in some instances, patients and residents may have medical, psychological, or other conditions that can complicate manual lifting and movement activities. Excessive body weight and manual handling can cause musculoskeletal injuries to both care providers as well as patients.
