Rope Sling Tool
Anyone remember the ole rope sling tool used to move patients? Simply a piece of 1" rope that was spliced together and had a dual metal ring slide that was used to adjust it.
A bight was placed across chest and under arms. The ring was used to adjust the fit and then the patient was moved using the rope.
Sure, there are disadvantages and other means to use however anyone remember this?
Anyone still making this tool?
