WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Sara Safety Strap is used with a lifting Sling to help someone stand up. This could be the Double Lifting Band (sold separately) design, or the single band design that is used with a foot platform and knee block to stand the patients up to transfer.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Safety Strap will help prevent the lifting band from riding up and may help a patient who feels insecure during a transfer.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Undo one of the knots tied to the end of the rope and remove the plastic stop. Then slide the rope off the hoist. Place the loop on the Safety Strap over the Lifting Band. Replace the rope into the hoist and refit the plastic stopper.
The Safety Strap is attached to the Sling behind the patient’s back. This may be left in position when the hoist is not being used. When lifting, simply do up the soft wide belt section around the patient’s waist.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Webbing, material, Hook & Loop Tape.
When testing this product with an able bodied person, the Sara Safety Strap provided enough support to stop them falling from the Sling. However, we cannot guarantee if it will be suitable for every patient. There may be an individual who could fall in an unusual manner, which could make the Sara Safety Strap less effective.
