The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap was designed to help a worker overcome the potential negative health impacts of suspension trauma (otherwise known as Orthostatic Intolerance). This condition can occur when a person remains suspended at height (after a fall) for even short periods of time.
Suspension in a harness may cause blood to pool in the veins of the legs which can result in unconsciousness; if not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur.
The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap is designed to prevent suspension trauma while a worker is awaiting rescue. The strap allows the worker, who is suspended, to stand up in their harness and to relieve the pressure being applied to the arteries and veins around the top of the legs.
The continuous loop design allows both sides of the harness to relieve the pressure being applied to the legs. The strap accommodates either having one foot or both feet in the loop at a time - it will relieve the pressure to both sides with just one foot in allowing for added movement of the legs. The strap allows for increased comfort, balance and improved circulation in the legs while suspended and waiting for rescue.
Compact, lightweight tactical seat harness for climbing and mountaineering
Designed for the military, the ASPIC is a lightweight, compact harness for climbing and mountaineering. The waist belt and leg loops are lined with breathable perforated foam for maximum comfort when suspended. Waistbelt comfort foam is removable to prioritize lightweight or comfort, depending on the activity or the clothes worn. When combined with the CHEST’AIR chest harness, the ASPIC may be used for helicopter evacuations.
Ultra-comfortable rope access harness
With an integrated CROLL L ventral rope clamp, the ASTRO BOD FAST harness is designed for greater efficiency and comfort during rope ascents. The gated ventral attachment point allows the optimal integration of equipment (rope clamp, seat...). Wide, semi-rigid waistbelt and leg loops give excellent support. They are contoured and lined with a breathable foam padding for comfort when suspended.
