Silvalea announce planned reveal of ‘top secret’ new sling innovation

Tuesday 20th September 2016

Silvalea announce planned reveal of ‘top secret’ new sling innovation, we believe, will change the patient sling industry, at the OT Show in November 23rd – 24th.

What the innovation actually is, we cannot currently say, what we can say, this innovation will impact significantly on the industry. Silvalea are planning a preview of the sling solution at the OT show in November on the 23rd and 24th, and we have been issuing press releases and a teaser advertising campaign in advance of the show.

MD Pauline Guilfoyle has declared that the innovation, which has been developed over the last 3 years, will be a significant advance in providing a more hazard free sling solution.

“There are always hazards with slings, fitting, fixings, and inadequately trained individuals, all can contribute to potential accidents. If we can remove just one of these potential hazards, then we are doing our job. As a leading manufacturer Silvalea has always sought to improve patient slings in order to add comfort and safety for our end users and carers.”

She added “This development is set to change things quite significantly and solves a potential hazard which has long been inherent in sling fixings.”

So why preview at the OT Show? Gary Bevan - Sales & Operations Director stated.

“We have long worked with OT’s and healthcare professionals, not just providing sling solutions but working with them to develop solutions for complex patient scenarios, with their help and input Silvalea has continued to create a high-quality, high performance transfer product range and we would like to acknowledge their part in our continued success by previewing this innovation at the OT Show.”

Silvalea who since 1993 has a history of developing innovations in the patient sling market from the first Parasilk In-situ sling to 3D performance sports fabrics to name just two, will be demonstrating this new solution on stand G50 at the OT Show 23rd – 24th November.

Will you be there? Stand G50 OT Show.

Read through our company innovation timeline below:

1993 - Silvalea became the first ever UK independent (replacement) patient sling manufacturer.
They believed end-users deserved a level of comfort and dignity never seen before.

1997 - Silvalea introduced the 1st Parasilk In-situ sling.
It revolutionised not only sling manufacturing but the way in-situ slings were used and viewed. They didn’t make empty claims; SIlvalea made in-situ comfort a reality.

2005 - Silvalea launched the Silva-Superfine with Coolmax In-situ fabric range.
A soft breathable in-situ mesh with Coolmax for moisture and temperature control. The In-situ range featured, not only, this unique sports performance fabric to keep users cool in the confines of a moulded chair but the sling design was improved with selective tailoring to mould like a second skin.

2007 - Silvalea cements In-situ sling dominance by adding 3D high performance fabric to In-situ sling range.
Adding to the already impressive list of exclusive fabrics and specialised ‘true’ In-situ range; Silvalea adds 3D Superfine (spacer) fabrics. A three dimensional mesh sourced and developed to adapt to the end-users’ body particularly those with skin integrity issues. Another first.

2014 - Silvalea introduced the D-anserclip® for use on stud/clip fixing spreader bar.
Unique among clip fixing alternatives the D-anserclip works with a variety of studs across a broad range of hoists. Designed with a unique patented safety clip on/clip off action.

A company with a history of launching game changing innovations, Silvalea invites you to preview their latest sling solution at the OT Show 23rd – 24th November STAND G50.
