What is it?

The Amputee Pocket is an adapted version of the Silvalea Convenience Sling with padded rolls. This sling has all the benefits of a convenience sling but is suitable for both single and double amputee users where the amputation occurs above the knee.

The leg tapes are adjustable with sliders making this sling suitable for high or through hip amputations. With maximum comfort in mind this sling was designed with the addition of under arm padded rolls, full padding throughout as well as soft towel lined pocket(s). Used for dressing and toileting, this sling is suited to those with good upper body control. This dressing/toileting sling features a waist support with clunk-click buckle for additional support and safety. As with all dressing slings due to the aperture this sling must be fitted correctly and full patient risk assessment should be carried out.

Loop fixings only.

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”

Many thanks.  Sorry I cannot share this photo with you but take it from me she looks fab.

Good job!
