Tailoring Process

Silvalea has a long-standing history of bespoke and customised products. Working alongside healthcare professionals and carers on the most complex patient transfer cases has enabled us to offer a world class customisation service in the field of patient transfer slings.  

In-situ solutions can be tailored specifically to the individual's wheelchair matrixes and the most complex of body shapes, ensuring optimum client comfort and safety.

With our innovative tailoring and unique fabrics Silvalea were the first to introduce the concept of in-situ slings into the United Kingdom by launching our Parasilk range, closely followed by our exclusive fabric Silva-Superfine for tight moulded wheelchair in-situ use.

The Silvalea team have a vast amount of both manufacturing and application knowledge ensuring we can provide a real problem-solving solution.

Silvalea has invested in a suite of testing equipment ensuring our compliance with ISO 10535:2021 to demonstrate our commitment to quality control. The bespoke load testing machine enables us to test Silvalea products to their safe working loads and put them through extensive testing to ensure confidence in each sling design. Every tailor-made sling is subject to thorough testing and our stock items receive regular quality checks throughout the production process and prior to dispatch.

All tailor-made products now have specific packaging along with a certificate of conformity. This certificate will enable you to register your product and activate your warranty. 

With an extensive worldwide distribution channel our customised slings are now available in many different countries so please contact us to find your local distributor.
