Yew

The Yew is a universal easy fit sling, which is shaped to provide separate leg supports, allowing a much easier application. This product encourages good hip positioning, whilst providing total body support throughout the lifting procedure. The Yew is particularly suitable for certain amputee patients. Our fabrics, cuts and sizes are developed to suit most patient demographics, whilst encouraging use in all healthcare environments. Yew is easy to apply from both the lying & sitting positions and can be manufactured with a range of webbing heights or even our latest patented Dosec® clip technology.
