Handi Lift Walk Belt
$73.00 AUD – $108.00 AUD
- 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, and all the handles are fully padded.
This product is available in either:
- Standard white nylon material lining
- Grey Miracle Grip rubber lining
The rubber grips to clothing very well, there is is still the possibility of some slipping between the clothes and the skin. We normally recommend the standard white nylon material lining for most people.
About the Extra Extra Large Size
All sizes have 4 vertical handles, except for the Extra Extra Large size, which has 6 handles. This size is designed as a bariatric size belt. The extra handles means that more carers 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 was the first walking & transferring belt we made many years ago. It has more or less been superseded by both the Handi Lift Walk Belt and the Soft Transfer Belt, which are much wider and more comfortable than the Gait Belt. The Soft Transfer Belt is padded and has padded handles,. The Gait Belt and Handi Lift Walk Belt are not (only the handles of the Handi Lift Walk Belt are padded). The Soft Transfer Belt also uses an adjustable buckle at the front (so it can be used for a variety of sizes of people), while the Handi Lift Walk Belt comes in different sizes.
