Gait Belt provides a secure way for the caregiver to support the patient during the transfer process. Without the use of the gait belt, the caregiver is forced to hang on to the patient's clothing or under the patient's arms. This can cause discomfort or potential injury to both the patient and caregiver. Sturdy and made from cotton webbing. Machine washable too.
It’s a win-win for you and your loved one. Protect your back from injury and at the same time give your loved one a sense of security when transferring or walking with them. It’s no secret that nurses and physical therapists have relied on gait belts to move their patients about for years. In-home family caregivers can equally depend on them as to move weak or frail loved ones safely around the house. This simple and inexpensive device should always be kept on hand to prevent falls.
