Using a Gait Belt when walking with a patient offers an ergonomic solution for safe patient handling. Often caregivers prefer to use transfer gait belts to assist in proper techniques when helping patients walk or stand.
- Four ergonomic, easy grip handles
- Durable plastic buckle with comfort finish
- Easily assist in patient mobility or rehabilitation
We offer a full line of Gait Belts, allowing nursing homes and health care facilities to assist their patients properly while reducing the risk of injury to caregivers. Our traditional Gait Belt gives the caregiver something to hold when assisting a walking patient. Not only can this protect the caregiver from injury, but it can also give a frail patient more confidence to walk unassisted, knowing that assistance can be given if needed.
ErgoSafe recommends that caregivers practice with the Bariatric Slide Tube prior to actual patient care, as working with each other will allow you to appreciate the feeling from the patient’s perspective. It is imperative to provide proper patient care and to limit risk of injury to caregivers through the use of ergonomic manual handling aids such as the Slide Sheet. Learning to turn, sliding patients up and down in bed, or simply repositioning the patient can be accomplished safely and easily by implementing the standard use of an ErgoSafe™ Bariatric Slide Tube in your healthcare facility today.
ErgoSafe Products works closely with nursing homes and other care giving institutions to provide patient handling devices to assist caregivers with their daily tasks of moving and repositioning patients. Call Prism Medical today and begin employing safer conditions for your employees and patients.
