Wispa Sling Range
The Chiltern Invadex range of Wispa slings has been carefully assessed and tested to be compatible with the Wispa range of hoists. It has been developed utilising specialist materials, tested to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, combined with the knowledge of healthcare professionals, end users and a team of expert machinists. The range includes Universal, Hammock and Toileting/Access slings, sized from Paediatric through to Extra Large, each with many customisable options to produce a user specific model.
Each sling features a range of elements carefully selected to ensure comfort and ease of use.
Standard sling sizes are based on those most frequently requested. However, as we appreciate that each person is unique and requires differing levels of support, bespoke slings can be produced to suit specific user needs should the standard sizes be unsuitable.
If unsure of which sling size to select, please contact customer services on 01869 365500 opt 1, to arrange for a free in home product demonstration.

Safety and Compatibility
All of our slings have been fully load and durability tested and carry the CE mark in accordance with the Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC (as amended 2007)
Although the use of Wispa slings is recommended, user safety, comfort and personal choice is paramount when selecting appropriate equipment. Chiltern Invadex acknowledge that users often require the use of a sling by another manufacturer or require the use of a Wispa sling on another manufacturers hoist. We do not advise against this and offer guidance to ensure the safety of all parties involved in the lifting process. A copy of our Sling Compatibility Statement is available for download here.
