I bought this because I care for an elderly man who weighs approx. 300 pounds and he falls from bed at night and we had no way of getting him up, except to call the neighbor a couple of miles down the road. We had ordered a hoyer lift, and it came with this horrible sling with all kinds of metal parts. We used that a couple of times but had a terrible time figuring it out. I remembered the type of sling I had when caring for my father and I seen it here and I decided to order it. I had to use it within a few days and wow this one is so easy and got him up off the floor and even got him in the bed, where as the other contraption just could not do any of that. And it did it with comfort as well. Thank you so much.

Excellent Patient Lift Sling for The Money
Although the loops are not color coded like similar slings I have owned, the sling is a great value for the price. I purchased 2 slings here for less than the cost of a single sling elsewhere. This sling is rated for up to 400 lbs. and works well for me as I'm extremely light. This sling is slightly longer than my other mesh sling, but that's fine.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are happy to know that the item is working out great for you. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Thanks for being a Vive Health Customer! ~Rebecca, Vive Health CS~
