The BINDER LIFT™ harness is THE SAFER WAY TO LIFT BECAUSE HUMANS DON'T COME WITH HANDLES! The BINDER LIFT™ was specifically designed for EMS/Firefighter and Caregiving personnel who have been called upon to provide lift assistance to non-trauma patients who have fallen and cannot get up without help. The BINDER LIFT™ was created to quickly and easily attach around the patients torso. It incorporates multiple hand loops (14-18 depending on harness size)to allow from one to six people to safely provide lift assistance. The BINDER LIFT™ will SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY and SAVE YOUR BACK!
The BINDER LIFT™ harness is entirely made in the U.S.A. It is constructed using a combination of 2” polypropylene web strapping and Cordura Denier 1000 nylon for its base. The web strapping has a minimum breaking strength of 1200 lb while the Cordura has a 500/550 lb warp/weave strength (without the web strap). The Cordura utilizes a special coating to resist fluid absorption and can be easily cleaned using soap and water, sanitary wipes or machine wash on gentle cycle.
The BINDER LIFT™ uses heavy duty rated 250 lb quick release buckles for easy attachment/detachment. Used in combination, over 750 lbs of HORIZONTAL PULL would be required before failure was achieved. Because the lifting process requires VERTICAL PULL, these buckles are more than sufficient when properly used. The leg straps are what allow the lower set of lifting handles to be utilized without causing the BINDER LIFT™ to scrunch up the torso as the lifting process is executed. Thus, the 500 lb combined buckle rating on the leg straps has proven to be more than sufficient when used in conjunction with the chest buckles. Also, for added patient comfort, the BINDER LIFT™ incorporates a 1 ½ inch foam cushion along the top edge to prevent skin tearing or gouging of the patients underarms.
The BINDER LIFT™ is unique in that it BENEFITS first and foremost, the EMT/Care Provider (end user) by providing them a way to grasp the patient without compromising good lifting posture/body mechanics. By providing a multitude of lifting handles from which to choose, the end user can share the burden of the lifting weight with other lifting partners. SECONDLY, the BINDER LIFT™ benefits the patient by: securely and safely enveloping them during the lifting procedure, minimizing the risk of injury due to skin tears, bruising or mishandling, as well as reducing patient discomfort and distress. THIRDLY, the BINDER LIFT™ benefits the department or service that utilizes this unique lifting harness by MINIMIZING THE RISK of incurring extensive monetary expenses associated with a lower back injury claim incurred by its employee(s).
TIME and MONEY.
The BINDER LIFT™ will SAVE your department TIME AND MONEY by providing your employee/volunteer the RIGHT tool for the job. Having the right tool eliminates wasted/excessive time spent on the call. The BINDER LIFT™ reduces the need to call for additional trucks/manpower for the majority of lift-assist calls. When extra manpower is needed, LESS TIME will be spent by eliminating the need to improvise.
One year warranty against manufacture defects.
