Product Manual

If you view the videos on our site, and the video to the right, you will see how the Doty Belt works when used to carry and transport a patient in an emergency situation. The belt is designed to be easy-to-use in any situation so that you can lift a patient from the ground or floor safely.

The leg straps are yellow for quick identification and the D-rings are more rugged than plastic buckles and will not need to be replaced. The handles can hold 300 lbs each for a total weight of 1,200 lbs. The belt will adjust up to 60″ and the leg loops will adjust up to 46″.
