About Silvalea

Founded in the UK in 1993 by  Pauline Guilfoyle and her daughter Lynne Guilfoyle-Timm, Silvalea grew to become a leader in replacement patient slings throughout Europe. 

Known for exceptional quality and an emphasis on patient fit and comfort, health care providers recognized the difference that a Silvalea sling could make – regardless of the lift being used. With research and development centered around sling fit and fabric use, both patients and caregivers can see and feel the difference of a Silvalea sling. 

Now a division of Savaria Corporation, Silvalea slings are available throughout North America with distribution via Span-America.

For over 30 years, Span has offered the industry’s most comprehensive line of specialty solutions for pressure management, patient positioning and medical beds.

With an emphasis on clinical solutions, Span focuses on positive patient outcomes.

Savaria patient lifts, innovatively designed with better battery technology, a SureClip system for improved attachment safety, and overall simplicity of operation, provide industry-leading benefits for both institutional and home use.

Altogether, the trio of Silvalea, Span and Savaria provide a powerful portfolio of science-based patient handling solutions.
