The Back Strap – Lumbar is very helpful in supporting the lumbar region and in encouraging a good sitting posture.
They can be used at work, when watching sport, at the theatre and cinema, camping, fishing, or any time that you are sitting on a chair, bench, stool or even on the beach or on grass.
The Back Strap is placed behind the lumbar area and is held in position by straps extending to the person’s knees.
Attach Hook & Loop Tape straps and remove foam, then wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.
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.
