Saving the Backs of First Responders and Caregivers throughout the World

The DotyBelt Lift Assist Harness
The Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness was created to keep both patients and caregivers safe, while preserving patient dignity. The ergonomic design of the Doty Belt helps to safely lift and maneuver heavy, elderly and bariatric patients while reducing the risk of back injury for providers. It is perfectly suited for use in a nursing home, hospital or in a fire station. It is intended to be used as a lift belt for the elderly, as well as a lift assist harness for those who have been injured, or are otherwise too compromised to be mobile on their own.
The Doty Belt stitching has been pull-tested up to 1,700 lbs without tearing or wear to the handles. Whether it is moving an elderly person or picking up people that are in trouble, this tool gives first responders the ability to lift and assist a person safely.
The Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness was developed by a fire captain with 20 years of service who recognized the growing need for an effective, safe way to lift and maneuver patients, that would also be compact and reusable.
