Trauma Strap

Guardian 10733

While it may initially be difficult to believe, one of the most hazardous elements of a fall from heights does not involve the fall itself, but the prolonged effects of being suspended in a full-body safety harness after a fall. The Trauma Strap is designed to prevent orthostatic intolerance, otherwise known as suspension trauma, by allowing a worker to achieve a standing position while waiting to be rescued. This functions to relieve pressure from the legs and allow blood to flow more regularly. A supremely compact and lightweight device, the Guardian 10733 trauma strap is deployed by a fallen worker to enable them to stand up in their harness to relieve pressure from their limbs. It easily attaches to any harness with its textile and Velcro loops, and can make the difference between walking away from a fall and being carried away from a fall. It is important to note that this equipment will not be usable by an unconscious victim, and should only be considered as an intermediate measure for use until rescue and recovery occur. An important part of any rescue plan. EM 381-1-1 States “all full body harnesses shall be equipped with with suspension trauma preventers such as stirrups, relief steps, or similar in order to provide short term relief from the effects of orthostatic intolerance.

5 of 5 Guardian Fall Protection STS April 1, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Beaumont, TX United States  
Our operations team is thoroughly satisfied with these STS over our previous stirrup style trauma straps. It is much easier to use especially if you were placed in a fall/suspension situation.

Thank you for your services.
