Are there any precautions that I need to consider?

Following are the precautions one must take:
  • ALWAYS check for skin integrity, proper circulation and range of motion when the belt is in use. Ensure that the belt is secure and does not compromise the patient’s medical condition and does not interfere with tubes, lines or other equipment.
  • ALWAYS inspect before each use: check for broken stitches or parts; torn, cut or frayed material; or buckles that are cracked or broken and do not hold securely. NEVER use soiled or damaged products.
  • NEVER use a Gait or Transfer Belt as a seat belt or to position a person in a chair or vehicle. Gait and Transfer Belts are not designed for seat positioning or to withstand the force of a crash.
  • Do not over-rely on a Gait or Transfer Belt. These are not a substitute for good body mechanics when assisting patients. Get assistance when needed, and always follow the facility’s written procedures for approved assisted walking, lifting and/or transfer procedures.
  • This product is not intended for use as a restraint. Remove after each use. When not in use, the caregiver can wear the belt for immediate access as needed.
  • Never apply a Gait Belt or Transfer Belt if there is any compromise of safety or indication of inappropriateness to the patient or caregiver. Patients using a Gait Belt or Transfer Belt that have the following conditions should always be evaluated: ostomy, colostomy, G-tubes, hernias, severe Cardio Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), as well as those with post-surgery incisions, or those fitted with monitoring equipment, tubes or lines that might be compromised by the pressure or the rubbing against a Gait Belt or Transfer Belt. Do not use a Gait Belt or Transfer Belt if the risk is outweighed by the benefit.
  • Properly dispose of the product per facility’s policy for biohazardous materials.

For metal buckle:
  • With the Posey label facing outside, wrap the belt around the patient’s waist, pass the metal tip of the belt through the buckle and over the teeth of the buckle.
  • Bring the tip of the belt across the front of the buckle and slip it through the other side. Adjust it so it is snug, but not uncomfortable for the patient. You should be able to slip your open hand (flat) between the belt and the patient.
  • The strap should lay flat across the buckle. Tuck excess under the belt. Always verify proper closure before use.
  • Always grasp the transfer belt from underneath. Assist patient using your facility’s approved procedures. 
For Quick-Release Buckle:
  • Release the quick-release buckle by pushing inward on the quick-release buttons.
  • Fit the belt to the patient’s waist size.
  • Once adjusted, wrap the belt around the patient and snap the buckle shut.
  • Make sure you can slide your open hand (flat) between the belt and the patient.
  • Turn the buckle around to the patient’s back (tuck excess strap under belt).
  • ALWAYS grasp the transfer belt from underneath. Assist patient using your facility’s approved procedures.
