What to buy with MTS Transfer Belt?


How to use SafetySure Sherpa Lined Transfer Belt?

  • Positioning
    - Position the SafetySure Transfer Belt low on the individual's waist. Tighten the transfer belt by pulling on the two end pieces. Remember, that an individual's girth is greater when sitting. It is important that the patient transfer belt is comfortably tight. To remove the gait belt, the release clips on both sides of the buckle.

  • Helping an individual to stand or sit
    - There are many different ways to use Patient Transfer Gait Belts to assist an individual to stand or sit. Think of the direction of the transfer and follow the body's natural movement pattern. Always transfer to the patient's strongest side. Use good body mechanics and rocking and pulling motion rather than lifting when using a belt. Either the individual, caregiver or both can wear a transfer belt.

  • Helping an individual up from the floor
    - The Safety Sure patient transfer belt is extremely useful in helping someone up from the floor. Remember, do not lift straight upward, but follow a natural movement pattern. Allow the patient to gain additional support from leaning against the bed or gripping onto a chair.

  • Transfer between bed and wheelchair
    - The SSTB is of considerable help in performing transfers from a bed to a wheelchair. The individual can be either standing or sitting.

  • Transfer between a wheelchair and a car
    - For transfers into a car, a Safety Sure Transfer Board can be used in combination with an SSTB. Make sure that the individual does not end up sitting between the wheelchair and the car seat. In the case of a passive individual, a Safety Sure Transfer Sling (Item 3011) may also be used by placing it underneath the buttock area of the individual. Using this technique, it makes the transfer easier for the individual and puts less strain on the caregiver.

  • Help during toileting
    - When an individual needs to use the toilet, it is important to plan ahead and keep the safety of both the individual and caregiver in mind. If there is not enough space in the bathroom, it is advisable to use a commode outside of the bathroom. If the patient is heavy, two caregivers may be needed.

  • Support when walking
    - When supporting someone who is ambulatory, it is important to keep on arm around the patient for protection. Always hold the individual close to you. This enables the caregiver to react more quickly if the individual needs help, and reduces the amount of strain on the caregiver. The SafetySure Transfer Belt, with its multiple handles, provides good grips and a comfortable way of supporting the patient during transfer.

  • Protecting an individual who is unstable when walking
    - When there is a risk that an individual could fall while walking, it is important to hold the individual close to the caregiver in order to prevent the individual from slipping down. If this does occur, let the individual slide down along the outside of the caregiver's leg.

  • Points to Remember
    - More than one caregiver may be needed. Belts with padded handles are easier to grip and increase security and control. Belts may not be suitable for ambulation of heavy patients or patients with recent abdominal or back surgery, abdominal aneurysm, etc. Should not be used for lifting residents. Ensure the belt is securely fastened and cannot be easily undone by the resident during transfer. Ensure a layer of clothing is between the resident's skin and the belt to avoid abrasion. Keep patients as close as possible to the caregiver during transfer. Lower bedrails, remove arms and footrests from chairs, and other items that may obstruct the transfer.
