Default The benefits of the simple gait belt

So I've used one on and off, particularly with physical therapy. But recently with my transfers getting more challenging after a hot bike ride, this around my waist makes it waaay easier to get off my handcycle. Laura just gives me a tug and I pop onto my wheelchair easy peasy. Takes a little stress off the situation as well, because I can look darn sketchy trying to get off!

Oh, and it helps your partner/therapist catch you if you teeter. So there's that.
