GHUG – Glove™ HUG

The GHUG is an advanced design with a unique combination of benefits and is popular with physio gyms, schools and in the home.

It can be used as a high support access sling or as a standing and walking harness. The hugging effect grips a person securely yet comfortably, reducing the tendency for a low tone user to slide down into the sling during transfer.

It is also a secure option for people who tend to move a lot whilst in a sling who may be at risk in a conventional sling.

The GHUG is available in sizes 2-9, with a Safe Working Load of 200kg.

All of our slings have contrasting colours for safety critical stitching and are compatible with most hoists. Contact us for sling compatibility confirmation.

By using our sizing chart, you can save assessment time and get it right the very first time!
