The Doty Belt – International Fire Fighter

Published on February 15, 2023 in Publication

The Doty Belt/Life Assist Harness has been created to ensure the safety of patient and rescuer, while preserving patient dignity and well-being. The ergonomic advantage the ‘Doty Belt’ provides for lifting and maneuvering heavy, elderly and bariatric patients reduces the risk of back injury for providers and increases security for patients.

The ‘Doty Belt’ stitching has been pull-tested up to 1,500 lbs without tearing or wear to the handles. Whether it is moving an elderly person, a particularly heavy person, or picking up people that are in a difficult situation, this tool gives first responders the ability to lift and assist a person in a safe, manageable and efficient way.

The Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness was developed by Glen Doty, 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, reliable and resuable.
