Enhanced Patient Comfort. Simple Donning Process. Increase Therapy Productivity.

Patient discomfort and the time required to put on a rehabilitation harness can be a barrier for therapists to use body weight support and fall protection systems. Impingement by harness straps into the groin and axilla can make it difficult for patients to focus on their form and challenging for therapists to encourage intensity during functional tasks. The need for a second set of hands or additional time to properly place harnesses can result in the loss of valuable therapy treatment minutes.

Designed in collaboration with PTs, the SafeGait EMBRACE™ Rehabilitation Harness is an innovative solution that addresses traditional harness ‘pain points’ and enables patients to comfortably and safely practice gait, balance and falls management exercises.

System Highlights

Exclusive AbBand Design

SafeGait EMBRACE™ is designed with a unique interior structure in the AbBand that comfortably counters uplifting forces from body-weight support (BWS) systems. A ‘gripping’ interior material helps maintain position against the patient’s clothing, while soft, padded exterior textiles provide comfort without limiting movement. This is of particular importance for patients moving from a seated to standing position.

EMBRACE attaches to BWS systems via 4 safety buckles that eliminate the potential of accidental disconnection seen in some one-touch, seatbelt like designs.

Chest Band

The padded chest band is designed to provide a comfortable, secure fit on the patient. Unlike many ordinary harnesses, the SafeGait EMBRACE™ chest band is free from connection points attached to an overhead body-weight support system which can lead to components ‘riding up’ into the axilla and causing discomfort.

Both Ab and chest bands feature central Velcro® attachment columns and secondary ‘hug’ belts for a comfortable, secure ‘embrace.’

Interchangeable Leg Cuffs with Alignment Straps

Modular design allows for interchangeability between leg cuffs and torso units to accommodate patients with varying body types. Leg Cuffs are removable with quick-release buckles providing flexibility and more ‘fitting’ combinations. The color-coded Leg Cuff Alignment Strap allows therapists to easily match to torso units and quickly align cuffs correctly on the patient. Includes secondary ‘hug’ straps to provide for a snug, secure yet unrestricted ‘embrace.’
