Gait Belt-Revisited

by on December 29, 2010

After a bit of digging and improvisation, I put Satomi in my old rock-wall safety harness.  It was a bit big but is wrapped around her pelvis well and gave use some very good hand holds for supporting Satomi while she moved around.  I also use the gait belt but only for stability.

Satomi hates the harness and keeps talking about some floor-mounted mechanized crane or whatever.  I really don’t think she understands that this harness is only to allow us somewhere to grab when she falls.  She forgets that she’s fallen or had a seizure EVERYDAY since it all went wrong back on Christmas day.

I’m sure it’s the Physical Therapist in her.  She keeps correcting my grip on the gait belt.
