Doty Belt LLC Introduces the Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness

Press Release May 16, 2012

Sacramento, California -- The Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness was created to provide patient and provider safety, 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.

Tested to UL standards for life safety harnesses, 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 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 reusable.

Because of their reputation for producing high-quality, durable products Fire Innovations of Petaluma, Calif.,  was selected to manufacture the Doty Belt/Lift Assist Harness. Since 2000, Fire Innovations has been a respected maker of bailout systems, truck belts and many other innovative products for the fire and EMS community.
