SafetySure Transfer Belt


SafetySure Transfer Belt (SST Belt) is used primarily to:

  • Help a patient to get up/sit down

  • Help a patient up from the floor

  • Transfer between bed and wheelchair or wheelchair and toilet or car

  • Support when walking

  • Protect patients who are unstable when walking

  • Help a patient maneuver when using the bathroom


The main advantages of the SST Belt are its numerous handgrips, anti-slip surface on the inside, and easy-to-fasten "fix lock"- type buckle.  The "fix lock" buckle allows you to retighten the belt once the patient is standing, without having to open it.  These advantages reduce the risk of the belt slipping upward, and provide a firm grip and working position.  The belt is also padded, making it comfortable to wear.  SST Belt is available in three sizes: Small (4 grips), Medium (5 grips), and Large (7 grips).


SST Belt is placed low on the waist.  It is pulled tight by grabbing the two end pieces and then pulling the belt tight around the waist (fig.1).  Remember, the patient's girth is greater when sitting.  It is important that the belt is comfortably tight.  The belt is removed by pressing against the center of the buckle.

Helping a patient to stand or sit

There are many different ways to use the SST Belt to assist a patient to stand or sit.  Think of the direction of the transfer and follow the body's natural movement pattern (fig. 2 - 6).  Either the patient, the helper, or both can wear a SST Belt.

Helping a patient up from the floor

SST Belt is extremely useful in helping someone up from the floor.  Do not lift straight upward, but follow a natural movement pattern.  The patient is then able to obtain support from leaning against or gripping on to a chair, bed or table (fig. 7).

Transfer between bed and wheelchair

SST Belt is of considerable help in performing transfers from a bed to a wheelchair; the patient can be sitting or standing (fig. 8).

Transfer between a wheelchair and a car

For transfers into a car, a SST Board can be used in combination with a SST Belt (fig. 9).  Make sure the patient does not end up sitting between the wheelchair and the car seat.  In the case of a passive patient, a SST Sling may also be used underneath him/her.  This makes it easier for the helper to pull the patient into the car and is more comfortable for the patient.

Help during toilet visits

When a patient needs to use the toilet, it is important to plan ahead and keep the safety of both the patient and the helper in mind (fig. 10).  If there is not enough bathroom space, use a commode outside the bathroom. If the patient is heavy, use two helpers (fig. 11).

Support when walking

When you are supporting someone who is ambulatory, keep one arm around the patient for protection (fig. 12).  Always hold the patient close to you.  This enables you to react more quickly if the patient needs help and reduces the amount of strain on yourself.  SST Belt provides good grips and a comfortable way of supporting a patient.

Protecting patient who is unstable when walking

When there is a risk that the patient could fall over, it is important to hold him/her close to you to prevent him/her from slipping down.  Allow the patient to slide down along the outside of your leg (fig. 13).
