The GFOOT is a great sling choice when leg support is required.
An extended and unsupported leg, puts excessive load on their lower thigh increasing risk of tissue damage or fracture. If a carer manually supports the leg they will stoop while fitting, this increases their risk of back injury. They may also inadvertently bend or twist the leg causing discomfort or injury. A GFOOT can be used to address this problem.
This GFOOT is available in 3 sizes, paediatric, adult and bariatric with a Safe Working Load of 75kg.

The GFOOT can be cupped around the heel of a person whilst they are sat in a wheelchair and attached to a hoist. Their leg can then be raised to ease the fitting of their sling under their thigh.
