Product Description & Reviews
The FabLife Gait Belt with Safety Quick Release Buckle is a very easy and effective aid to use while lifting or transferring people with limited mobility. The safety quick release plastic buckle is great to use for patients that need to be frequently moved, or in clinics where care is given to multiple patients. The buckle features a cover plate which adds security and prevents the buckle from an accidental release. Caregivers are often recommended to use gait belts to help transfer patients, as lifting them up from under the arms can be straining for the caregiver and the patient. For the caregiver, a gait belt is a back-saving device as it decreases the risk of back injury and prevents strain.To use easily place the belt around the person you need to move, secure the buckle in place and you're all set to move the person. Gait belts make it easier to move patients from place to place, whether it be from the wheelchair to their bed, chair, couch, car seat or bathroom. They are also great to reposition people as they sit and hold patients up as they walk, if they are too weak to walk on their own. The use of a gait belt provides the patient needed support and reduces risk of a damaging fall. Gait belts are best to use for cooperative people who can partially walk on their own. They are great to help care for people post surgery, but be wary of using belts with people who have had recent abdominal or back surgery.The durable FabLife Gait Belts feature a heavy duty 2" wide cotton webbing belt that is adjustable to provide a secure, custom fit. They are machine washable so they can be cleaned of dirt and be reused. Their sizes range from 32" to 72" and they come in three different buckle options: Metal, Quick Release Plastic, and Safety Quick Release.
