    Not sure what you are asking. Can you clarify?

    If you are asking about a mobile floor-based patient lift or ceiling track lift, we can provide some recommendations. The same goes for the slings that would go with the specific lift.

        Slings come in sizes based on body weight, but actually need to be based on your butt size more than your actual weight to fit correctly. Lift manufacturers may not honor warranties if you use another company's sling, but many do that. I would stick with on of the mainstream lift companies which offer a wide range of slings, and one ideally that has a local vendor where you can try the lift out before purchasing. If you also want to use the lift for travel, consider one that folds compactly and will allow you to easily take it along on flights or in a car or van. This would include the LikoLight, Molift Smart, and Hoyer Advance.

        For slings, look at "hygiene" slings (not bathing slings) which make it much easier to get the sling on and one when seated in your chair. It is not a good idea for your skin to keep a sling under you all the time when sitting in your wheelchair.
