- Important Information
The Handi Lift Walk Belt is a popular transfer belt. You can use it for transferring people, and when walking with people who need help.
Two Carers normally work together when using the Handi Lift Walk Belt. If necessary one Carer with training can work alone as long as this is safe.
The security of the double Hook & Loop Tape belt is very supportive.
All the webbing handles are padded.
This product is available in either:
- Standard white nylon material
- Grey Miracle Grip rubber lining
About the Extra Extra Large Size
All sizes have 4 vertical webbing handles, except for the Extra Extra Large size. The Extra Extra Large has 6 webbing handles and is a bariatric size belt. The extra handles allow more Carers to have something to hold onto if necessary. We are happy to quote on custom-made larger sizes.
You may have heard these transfer belts referred to as Pelican Belts, Johnny Belts, or Transfer Belts.

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.
What's the difference between the Handi Lift Walk Belt, the Soft Transfer Belt and the Gait Belt?
The Gait Belt is made from 5cm / 2" wide webbing with four webbing handles. It is normally used with patients who do not need a lot of help when walking. For some people the narrow webbing may not be comfortable. Consult your Manual Handling trainer to make sure this belt is right for you.
The Handi Lift Walk Belt is supportive for dependent frail patients. The 20cm / 8" wide material is comfortable on the patient. The Handi Lift Walk belt has four padded webbing handles that are comfortable for the Carers to control the gait in rehabilitation or with elderly patients.
The Soft Transfer Belt is padded, with a 5cm / 2" webbing belt and buckle that can be adjusted to size. There are four padded webbing handles to help stand and transfer patients. This is also available in a wipe clean material cover to help with cross infection.
