Support for sitting transfers, sit-to-stand, standing and walking
FlexiBelt is used as support for sit-to-stand transfers and for sitting transfers from the wheelchair to the bed, toilet or car. FlexiBelt can also be used as support when the user is standing and walking. The belt, which is placed around the user’s waist or hips, has multiple, sturdy handles, both vertically and horizontally, providing the caregiver with a firm grip in various situations.
The classic model of FlexiBelt features a soft and comfortable innerside of polyester velvet.
FlexiBelt, hug – a new, unique design that does all the work by itself!
FlexiBelt, hug is a new version of Handicare’s classic SystemRoMedic™ FlexiBelt. FlexiBelt, hug features a new, patented design with horizontal handles that slide freely in loops to make the belt “hug” on to the user instead of sliding up during transfer situations. With FlexiBelt, hug, the cargiver can provide even more support without using more effort. The new design actually does all the work by itself.
FlexiBelt, hug also features a new, woven label, with instructions for use, placed easily available on the lip used to tighten the belt. A new size color coding on the control loop further simplifies size controlling.

Combination of devices provides individually adapted solutions
To create optimal solutions for users with different needs and for transfers that are heavy and complex, FlexiBelt can be used in combination with other manual transfer aids. SupportStraps, which are available as an accessory, can be used as leg harness in combination with FlexiBelt. Sitting transfers can be performed with a little extra help from a sliding mat like EasySlide or the sliding board EasyGlide.
