Put simply, VAT exemption allows chronically sick or disabled people to buy eligible items at 0% rather than 20% VAT - thus saving them a significant amount of money. It is normally far easier to claim this exemption when buying online. Online shops, like ourselves, are set up to allow you to answer simple questions, in the comfort of your own home.

Selecting the right size
Hip width and back height measured in the sitting position are the most important factors to select the right sling size. For slings with belts, the waist circumference is important, too.
The client’s weight needs to be considered mainly for the sling’s maximum safe working load. It’s inferior to indicate the right sling size.
