Application of the Biodex Unweighing Harness in the Standing Position
The Unweighing Harness is used to improve mobility for patients that require body-weight supported ambulation as well as increased trunk stability. The two-panel design and detachable pelvic support allows for a wide range of adjustability and easy application. One size fits most: waist size 24”-54”; weight capacity to 300 lb.

   

Unweighing Harness – Add Pelvic Support
Alternate application of the Unweighing Harness. If the patient requires more stabilization, then criss-crossing the gluteal fold straps across the front provides an effective tightening of the harness around the pelvic region.

   

Application of the Biodex Unweighing Harness in the Seated Position
For the seated patient, first approximate the size of patient; better to err on too large. Adjust the back panels to get the upper harness through the patients arms and behind the patient as far as possible. Apply the lower portion of the harness by buckling in the thigh cuffs. Once patient is clipped in, cinch all adjustments as tight as patient can tolerate; it will loosen upon standing. When patient begins to stand, clip the thigh cuffs to the upper portion of the harness.
