Wanting better opportunities for your disabled child?
If you want freedom for your child and family to broaden opportunities to travel and participate in more adventure activities, then look no further than the ProMove Sling. The ProMove Sling was designed by a disabled man, who felt the limitations of opportunities he wanted to access. Since ProMove's development, it has allowed people to tap into experiences that were otherwise difficult or often avoided altogether. A great advantage of the ProMove is that its very design allows children to be placed into restricted spaces in a much more comfortable and dignified way.
The ProMove Sling allows access to tight spaces such as
* Airplane or bus/train seating
* Theme Park Rides
* Sailboarding or Kayaking
* Small bathrooms and toilet cubicles
* Transitioning onto mat or other seating areas in schools
Versatility with ProMove
The ProMove's very nature lends itself to more adventure. The child's ProMove is lightweight and compact and can be taken anywhere. In it's specially designed bag it can be hung over the wheelchair by its straps until needed or stuffed into suitcases or day out bag. The ProMove also provides an intermediate step to using a hoist, allowing child and parents to become used to using a sling before adoption hoisting. The ProMove can also be used with a hoist.
To wrap it up, the main benefits of the ProMove are
lightweight and compact in size
more dignified transfer than manhandling
minimises risk of injury to individual and carer
provides an intermediate step to using a hoist
Washable and withstands getting wet
