Product Description & Reviews
Drop Support harness is a unique, upper body harness that wraps around the user's waist, shoulders, chest, and torso, with an attached central handle running the length of the torso. The support handle is a point of contact between the user of the harness and the person assisting the user ("assistant"). This is what makes Drop Support unique. The support handle, located on the back, sits vertical, and not horizontal, like a standard gait belt. The vertical handle provides the assistant with a better means of controlling and managing the user directional motion. The vertical Support Handle isn't the only thing unique about Drop Support. The added support straps over the shoulder's and chest area help the assistant in better managing and stopping forward falls. A gait belt falls short in this area. Center of Gravity & Balance: Use of the support handle, an assistant can aid the user in regaining their balance by helping them find their center of gravity and base of support. If the user begins to fall forward, backwards, or side-to-side, the assistant utilizes the support handle to change the direction of the fall to re-establish the user's center of gravity and allowing the user to find their base of support, which the user will then be stable and balanced. Momentum: When the Drop Support harness is properly fitted and snugly secured, the assistant has a better chance of slowing the user's forward/downward momentum before it has a chance of gaining acceleration. By limiting or reducing the user's momentum, the assistant is more likely to be able to manage the users decent, which is both safer for the user and the assistant. By adding a waist belt, shoulder and chest straps, and tying it all into the vertical Support Handle, provides a better fall support system in reducing fall related injuries.
