    I assume you mean for a mechanical lift. What brand and model are you using?

    Usually what is often described as a "hygiene" sling which wraps under the thighs but leaves the buttocks uncovered.

    This would be the main sling I would consider. You need to select the size by both your weight and your "butt" size. This is a medium:

    This one would also be an option, esp. if you need more head support:

    Here are all the Invacare brand slings. Best to use the same brand of sling as the lift if at all possible:

    Once you find the stock number of the sling you want, you can shop around on the price.

    No, that one is going to be difficult to remove since the leg sections are joined. As I said above, if you must use Invacare, this would be the better style of sling (and it is cheaper too):

    The nursing home needs to use a sling that can be easily removed after transferring you to your chair. You need to insist upon getting your own sling and having it removed when you are in your chair, then replaced for transferring back to to bed. There is no way to do that safely with the sling you posted. The two leg sections are joined. We would never purchase that type of sling where I work...we always get divided leg slings. Stick up for yourself.
