This belt helps prevent patients from sliding down chairs to the floor. The patient can freely move their legs, twist around and even try to stand up, but the belt should prevent them from sliding or standing.
The belt is fitted around the chair and buckles together behind the patient. This Rear Fastening version is more popluar than the Front Fastening verison as it means patients cannot play with the buckles the two padded leg straps are then positioned under the legs, passed through the waist loops, wrapped around the frame of the chair at the pelvic area and then buckled up behind the chair, adjusting to size.
The belt is long enough to use on lounge chairs. However, on narrower chairs it may be beneficial to wrap the surplus webbing around the frame to shorten the webbing. This helps secure the belt at the ‘pelvic position’ either side of the hips.
If ladies are wearing the belt, it is better for them to be wearing trousers rather than a dress. Patients should always be monitored when wearing any safety item and if the belt or leg straps appear to be putting pressure around the patient, or under the legs, the patient should be repositioned to relieve this pressure.
