How to Use a Gait Belt With Handles?

  • Wrap the belt around the patient’s waist with the raised buckle seam (A) on the outside in front. After directing the metal tip of the belt through the buckle, place it over the buckle’s teeth.
  • Then slip the tip of the belt through the other side of the buckle (B). As you adjust the belt, keep in mind that it should remain secure yet comfortable for the patient.
  • When in use, the strap should always lie flat across the buckle. Any excess of the strap should be tucked under the strap (C).
  • When done adjusting, you should be able to slip your open hand flat between the belt and the patient (D). You want the belt tight enough that it will not slip on the patient when in use. Take special care to grab the belt only from underneath.
  • Monitor the gait belt’s effects on the patient’s skin, circulation, ROM, etc.
