Kaye suspension harness for suspension walkers is made of material that has a high compression element so that the body vest fits snuggly around the client and fastens with buckles. Kaye suspension harnesses were designed and made to comfortably hold clients when they are suspended in the Kaye Suspension Walkers.
Kaye Suspension harnesses come in two distinct styles depending on the size and weight of the user.
Models 9820-Small and 9821-Medium Slim, have three components: a body vest, 4 compression straps and four strap pads. These harnesses fit between the legs like pants and buckle up each side. Because of the construction of these harnesses, they are most comfortable for children under 60 lbs.Models 9822-Medium and 9824-Large, have four components: a body vest, 4 compression straps, four strap pads, and two thigh cuffs. They depend on the compression of the vest and the thigh straps to hold the vest in place. These vests buckle up the front and back. Because they do not have any component between the legs, they are comfortable for older, heavier clients, and can hold up to 200 lbs. The four compression straps can be added to aid alignment and have been found useful in many ways, to align the trunk, head and hips. The strap pads are added once the client is suspended to protect the head from the hardware on the suspension system.
It is recommended that the user should put on the vest in supine or standing position since an optimally fitted harness depends on the hips being in extension and the vest fitted low around the pelvis. In addition, the lower buckles, around the pelvis, must be pulled tight to keep the vest in place when the client is suspended.
The riding up problem usually occurs with patients whose pelvis is tilted forward, have hip flexion contracture, or who have larger derrieres. To reduce or eliminate the riding up problem, the following steps should be taken:
