Sling Doctor

Additional equipment support services we also provide:

Slings are Class One Medical Devices and are subject to Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) Examinations. A LOLER examination may only be conducted by a person trained and qualified to do so.  Space is provided on our GLOVE™ and COMFORT VALUE™ sling labels to note LOLER details.  For a small fee, Care & Independence will undertake a LOLER examination for our customers upon request.  Please contact us for further information.

It is a health and safety requirement that a label remains legible throughout the working life of a sling product.  Laundering over a prolonged period of time may cause the label to fade.  Care & Independence will replace faded labels on our sling products for a small fee.  Please contact us to arrange.


Care & Independence products come with a minimum of a three year warranty for COMFORT VALUE™, 15 year frame warranty on Bathing frames and a lifetime manufacturing warranty on GLOVE SLINGS™.  Should you experience a faulty or damaged product, we may replace or repair free of charge whilst covered by the warranty or for a nominal fee if outside of the warranty period. For full details and instructions on how to arrange a repair or replacement, please refer to our Returns & Repairs Policy and Procedure.



School Clinic

Our School Clinic service provides specialist assistance to occupational therapists working with less-abled children within an educational setting.

Typically taking place over a morning or afternoon, our local Product Specialist will visit the school to undertake a thorough assessment of those pupils in your care.  Whether they are new to the school and without a sling, or if they are existing pupils whom have simply had a growth spurt, we will help ensure every child has the right sling and right fit based on their individual needs.

Contact us today to enquire and make a booking.
