Walk Belt Pelican Medium - Yellow 
These transfer belts are sometimes referred to as Pelican Belts, Johnny Belts or Transfer Belts. This popular belt is just one of many manual handling aids we supply for use when transferring patients. The security of the double Velcro belt is very supportive for patients.
The belt can be made with a Miracle Grip lining that will grip to clothing very well. The belts have four large padded vertical handles. The belts are normally used with two Carers working together, but if necessary, one Carer with training can work alone, depending on the patient. When fitted, and used correctly the Handi-Lift/Walk Belt should not ride up. With the Miracle Grip the lining will grip on the patient's clothing.
However, it is possible the patient's clothing can ride up if not fitted properly. Be particularly careful not to tumble dry the belt as this could damage the Miracle Grip. Sometimes with a pendulous bust it may be better to use the Pelican Soft Transfer Belt, as this has a narrow belt and buckle and may be easier to fit around the waist. Consult your Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Back Care Specialist when using Manual Handling Products. Wipe with disinfectant.
Hand or machine wash, up to 80°C. Do not tumble dry or wring. Air dry only. Inspect frequently for signs of wear.
General Manual Handling Warning: Manual Handling products are designed to assist carers to help patients. They will not make the carer stronger or fitter, but with correct training and use of the products, should make manual handling easier and safer for both staff and patients. When training, practise with an able-bodied colleague. If any procedure is not comfortable or is difficult and puts the carer or patient in a dangerous position, the participants should call out to stop the manoeuvre, recover and recommence. Never jeopardise your health by straining, twisting or being incorrectly positioned when manual handling. Always select the most appropriate equipment for the patient’s current condition and if in doubt, use mechanical equipment. Ask your Manual Handling adviser for individual guidance.
