What is it?

The Silva Travel-Lite ® is the latest innovation from Silvalea. Building on our ethos of independence and quality of life for all, this dual-purpose sling helps carers and end users to reduce the manual handling issues around travel, days out, Changing Places and much more.

The Silva Travel-Lite ® is both a manual and hoistable sling in one. Simply turn the sling inside out to create a handy backpack. Store behind the wheelchair or wear over your back.

Manufactured in our exclusive Superfine COOLMAX® fabric – COOLMAX fabric is designed to move moisture away from the body and enhance fabric drying rate thus keeping users feeling cool and dry

The Silva Safety-Slot® is provided on the hoistable option, eliminating potential trip hazards and reducing the risk of the tapes catching in machinery.

Hoist tapes can be tucked away neatly in pockets when used as a manual sling

Multiple handle options for manual transfers.

The sides of the sling draw-up creating the perfect cocooning effect to create a safer and more comfortable transfer both in manual and hoistable transfer mode

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!
