Y
Invacare standing and transport slings are specifically designed to be used in conjunction with
the Invacare Stand Up Lift. Slings and accessories designed by other manufacturers or other
Invacare slings are not to be utilized as a component of Invacare’s stand up lift system. Use of
these products is prohibited and will void Invacare’s stand up lift warranty. Use only genuine
Invacare standing and transport slings and lift accessories to maintain patient safety and prod-
uct utility. Use the sling that is recommended by the individual’s doctor, nurse or medical assistant
for the comfort and safety of the individual being lifted.
Before positioning the legs of the stand up lift around the patient, make sure the patient's feet are

out of the way of the footplate, otherwise injury can occur.
The legs of the stand up lift MUST be in the MAXIMUM OPEN position and the shifter handle LOCKED

in place for optimum stability and safety. If the patient is in a transport sling and it becomes
necessary to move through a narrow passage, close the legs  of the stand up lift ONLY AS LONG
AS IT TAKES TO MOVE THROUGH THE PASSAGE. Once the stand up lift is through the passage, return
the legs of the stand up lift to the MAXIMUM OPEN position and  LOCK shifter handle IMMEDIATELY.
Invacare recommends locking the rear swivel casters ONLY when positioning or removing the

sling (standing or transport) from around the patient.
Invacare does NOT recommend locking the rear swivel casters of the stand up lift when lifting

and transferring an individual. Doing so could cause the lift to tip and endanger the patient and
assistants. Invacare DOES recommend that the rear swivel casters be left UNLOCKED during lifting
and transferring procedures to allow the stand up lift to stabilize itself when the patient is initially
lifted from and transferred to a chair, bed or any stationary object.
STANDING SLINGS - DO NOT use the standing sling in combination with the stand up lift as a

transport device. It is intended to transfer an individual from one resting surface to another (such
as a bed to a wheelchair). Moving a person using the standing sling in combination with the
stand up lift over ANY distance is NOT recommended.
STANDING SLINGS - Before lifting the patient, make sure the bottom edge of the standing sling is

positioned on the lower back of the patient and the patient's arms are outside the standing sling.
STANDING SLINGS - The belt MUST be snug, but comfortable on the patient, otherwise the patient

can slide out of the sling during transfer, possibly causing injury.
TRANSPORT SLINGS - Before lifting the patient, make sure the bottom edge of the transport sling is

at the base of the spine and the patient's arms are outside the transport sling.
