The Physio Traction Belt is a long belt fitted with a quick-release, easily adjustable lightweight buckle, which is very helpful for Manipulative Physiotherapists.
The Belt can be used in numerous ways on the Patient’s arms, legs and back etc. The Therapist can increase traction by wrapping the Belt around their own body and leaning back.
This method is becoming more popular after post-graduate Physiotherapists have attended a course demonstrating this technique.
Also available is the Physio Body Anchor.

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.
