The support handle is a point of contact between the user of the harness and the person assisting the user This is what makes Drop Support unique.
The support handle, located on the back, sits vertical, and not horizontal, like a standard gait belt. The vertical handle provides the assistant with a better means of controlling and managing the user’s directional motion.
The added support straps over the shoulder’s and chest area help the assistant in better managing and stopping forward falls.
Another benefit of the Support Handle is that it sits higher up the back, and is more accessible when the user is seated. No need to go digging all the way down the back to find a waist belt.
