Glove Airflow Sling
Designed to be left under user in a chair
The latest sling designed to be left underneath a person in their seating provides another unique solution from Glove Slings.
Sometimes people get too warm whilst sitting on a sling in their chair. This can cause discomfort but much worse, it could increase the risk of tissue problems in the longer term. The problem is getting air to the skin. Whilst most slings are made with breathable fabrics, some seating systems and cushions in wheelchairs are not breathable. In a warm environment this may cause a person to overheat and sweat. The Glove Airflow Sling has been uniquely designed to help with this.
Even more supportive than the revolutionary and hugely popular Glove InChair Sling, the Glove Glove Airflow Sling adds a new dimension for comfort, literally! The innovative knitted fabric construction provides an open labyrinth for air to flow all around the person sat on the sling.Enquiry

Just a quick reminder about Symmetrikit Family Workshops…….
Over the years we have found that the introduction of Sleep systems is most successful with a planned approach.
We find the best way to plan the approach, to set goals and manage expectations is to fully involve the client and their family in the process and this is why we offer assistance in doing this with our free Families Workshops.
We have been running these short workshops since 1999. If you have not been involved in one, (or it was a long time ago!) this information may help : We recommend a therapist gets between 4 to 6 families who are interested in night time postural care, together as a group, for an informal teaching/planning meeting involving about 2 hours of both theory and practice.
We provide a trained Symmetrikit Sales Manager who the therapist can then contact as required to do either the practical session or both the practical and theory elements; how much is up to you. If you have an experienced user or carer available who is willing to participate, then that will certainly offer reassurance to the families.
The outcome should be a better understanding of the benefits of 24 hour postural care (i.e. why it is worth trying something new?) and an action plan. If trials are to be implemented then review dates should be set.
If you are not currently involved in this programme and would like to know more about the workshops, please contact Fidelis (Ireland) on 028 (048 ROI) 2553 2777 or Tracy (Scotland) 01309 676677, or email email@example.com
