Ours sons school is insisting on using gait belt to help with transfers in the school. I am not even sure this is safe and going to check with Cincinnati next week.
He ca not get off the scooter by himself, but can walk once he is up. Has anyone used gait belt for transfers? Please help.

From my experience, a gait belt -when used properly- is perfect for his sistuation. That is, if he can indeed secure himself once in a standing position. It just gives that little bit of umph that he needs to get on his feet. Also, it is the best practice for the person doing the transfer with regard to back safety.

Thank you Teri.
