    The Walk Belt, also known as a Soft Transfer Belt, is a padded belt to help patients and carers in a transfer; both sit to stand and also whilst walking. The design features padded and reinforced cut away handles to maximise patient comfort and carer ease. The inclusion of the large buckle enables easy tightening of the belt once the patient is standing. This product is also known as the Soft Transfer Belt.  The inside of the belt is lined with a rubberised material designed to grip the patients clothing and minimise slipping.  Elasticised loops are fitted around the strap so that any excess can be folded away to improve the patients safety.

    The walk belt is available in two sizes:

    Small: 63cm to 106cm / 25in to 42in    Colour: White with Red Handles
    Large: 100cm to 160cm / 39in to 62in  Colour: White with Blue Handles

    Can be wiped clean with disinfectant for infection control

    How to Use a Walk Belt (01:59)
    The Walk Belt is designed to aid carers as they assist patients in sit-up-to-stand and walking. This video demonstrates the key features of the Walk Belt; as well as how to properly fit it to a patient, and use. You can read the transcript below: The Walk Belt is designed so that one, or two, carers can assist a patient in sit-up-to-stand, as well as with stability in walking. The Walk Belt is made from a wipeable PVC. The Walk Belt's innovative cut away from handles maximise patient comfort; and the buckle fastening allows easy tightening and fitting of the belt to the patient. Simply place the Walk Belt behind the patients back and draw the straps around the patient's front, attaching them together in the middle. Then pulling both straps together, tighten to fit the patient; these can be tightened further once the patient is standing if necessary. Tuck the straps in on either side, through the front handles of the Walk Belt. Now you can use the Walk Belt to aid the patient in standing; by taking hold of both the frontal and rear handles on the Walk Belt. Once the patient is standing, you can aid in walking, by using the same handles to support the patient's stability and mobility.

      The product does exactly what it is designed to do. Careful use when used by only one person on a patient. Although the product is designed for two handlers with a patient for safety purposes, it is also capable of being used by one handler/carer. I am a full time carer for my wife who is susceptible to falls and meet all her needs. The belt gives me peace of mind when I need to transfer her from one location to another. In the event a fall is likely, I can minimise the impact of the fall by lowering her to a chair or the floor, thus reducing the risk of extreme injury.
