Compensates for weak legs and provides extra support
Handicare’s patented ReTurnBelt is an excellent complement to ReTurn when there is a need for greater support and stability; for example, when the user’s weight-bearing ability is questionable or varies. ReTurnBelt can also be used separately, for support during sit-to-stand and to stabilize the user in an upright position, for example, during standing training, gait training and transfer.
ReTurnBelt is available in two materials and in many sizes to fit most users, from the smallest to the very largest.
Strong and durable polyamid
The classic version of ReTurnBelt is made from strong and durable polyamid. The belt features an anti-slip inside of moisture repellent, PU-coated nylon and and can therefore be used in environments where moisture and dampness are present or when there are special demands on hygiene. The fabric also ensures that the belt does not slide up but stays in place.
Wipeable material – can be cleaned using disinfectants
ReTurnBelt is also available in a wipeable material which can be cleaned using disinfectants.
Disposable material for optimal hygiene and safety
ReTurnBelt, disposable is made of a sturdy and durable non-woven material. Instead of laundering, the belt is discarded after use, when it becomes soiled or when the user no longer needs it. This prevents the spread of multi-resistant and other types of infectious bacteria. ReTurnBelt, disposable is intended for short-term use.
ReTurnBelt is easily placed around the user’s hips. The quick-connect buckle is strong and safe and easy to open, close and tighten. Two strong, sturdy, easy-to-grasp handles on either side of the belt provide the caregiver with a safe grip to guide and support the user. When the user is standing, ReTurnBelt can easily be attached to ReTurn’s rising ladder/centre post.
ReTurnBelt can also be used in combination with SupportStraps, which are available as an accessory, to function as lateral support for ReTurn7500i, ReTurn7400 and ReTurn7600.
