Instructions for use

Help the patient into a sitting position and place the gait belt around the waist. Ensure that the buckle is positioned slightly off-center in the front to avoid discomfort for the patient.

Never put the belt directly on the skin. Always place it on the patient's clothes. If the patient is frail or thin, place a towel in between the belt and the patient's body, and then put the belt on.

Tighten the belt until it is snug, but make sure it is not too tight and uncomfortable. You should be able to slide two fingers in between the belt and the person's body.

Once the belt is secured safely, stand facing the patient, and bend your knees while keeping the back straight. Place your arms around the patient's waist and put your hand under the belt.

Once your grip is firm, straighten your knees while you hold the belt with one hand and place your other hand on the person's back.
