FlexiBelt is used as support for sit-to-stand transfers and for sitting transfers from the wheelchair to the bed, toilet or car. FlexiBelt can also be used as support when the user is standing and walking. The belt, which is placed around the user’s waist or hips, has multiple, sturdy handles, both vertically and horizontally, providing the caregiver with a firm grip in various situations.
FlexiBelt, hug is a new version of Handicare's classic SystemRoMedic FlexiBelt. FlexiBelt, hug features a new, patented design with horizontal handles that slide freely in loops to make the belt “hug” on to the user instead of sliding up during transfer situations. With FlexiBelt, hug, the cargiver can provide even more support without using more effort. The new design actually does all the work by itself.
FlexiBelt, hug also features a new, woven label, with instructions for use, placed easily available on the lip used to tighten the belt. A new size color coding on the control loop further simplifies size controlling.
