Safe Patient Handling


Traditional woven gait belts with stitching and seams can harbor hidden pathogens and be difficult to clean, increasing the danger of spreading harmful bacteria and viruses from patient to patient.

Plus, it's easy to clean between patients with any common spray disinfectant to help reduce the risk of cross-contamination for safer patient transfers without transferring harmful pathogens.
