The leg belt aids the transfer of a patient into a wheelchair, onto the toilet, a chair or car seat. The leg belt works well in combination with the sliding board, the turn table, the raising aids or the belt. It makes transfer much more back-friendly for the care giver, and easier and less intrusive for the patient. The leg belt is used when transferring a seated patient from a bed to a wheelchair, or for similar low-level transfer situations. The leg belt facilitates the range of movement and significantly aids the safety of the transfer. The leg belt is gently placed around the legs of the seated patient, below knee level, and fastened with the Velcro fastener. The care giver then gently places her/his own foot between the patient’s feet. During transfer, the leg belt locks into position according to the patient’s endurance and allows the care giver to stabilize the rotation by placing light counter-pressure on the leg belt.
