    Hi Caz

    I have PM'd you with a link to a very good sling which has additional head support available, also keeps the the person in it in quite a nice sitting position. My husband hated feeling tipped back and we found this sling very good both for him and for me to slide behind for fitting.

    Hi, we have a really good sling - it's designed specifically to be left in under the person being hoisted so it's comfortable. It has great head and neck support - my husband has virtually no movement left and is unable to support himself at all, but finds it very comfortable. It's an 'In-situ Sling Range, Deluxe Leg Style Sling (superfine Plus)' made by a company called Silvalea Ltd. have a look on their website. Hope this helps.
