DescriptionThis webbing strap with stiffened stem enables the user to move a stiff or immobile leg, when getting into or out of a bed, a wheelchair, or using a footstool etc. The upper loop fits around the hand and wrist, and the lower stiffened loop slides over the foot to give control when lifting the leg. Length 88cm (34.5").
Using leg lifters on their own
Leg lifters can only be used if you are sitting down. Therefore if used to help with getting your legs into the bath to bathe, you will also need a board or a powered bath lift to sit on to enable you to use the leg lifter.
