Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Left Coast Sports Innovation llc. enhanced its website, http://www.grip-n-assist.com allowing consumers to purchase the gait belts online, view videos about the products, and receive answers to frequently asked questions. There are 3 different models based on size, the most popular being the Standard Belt with Grip handles, which fits most people and is the most popular model used by elders.
The revamped website includes an enhanced product page that gives visitors side by side comparison of the three available models developed for a wide range of needs- from a Lite version for use with petite elders and children, to the professional model, suitable for more regular use in hospice geriatric sectors and nursing homes. Consumers can compare the versions based on color, size, “uses”, features and applications.
The Innovative mobility belt was developed to resolve the leading cause of injuries for seniors and reduce their debilitating fear of physical activity.
Fractures obtained in a fall lead to serious health problems in the elderly, but what's really shocking is the non-physical damage left by falls. Falls can endanger elderly's health even without soft tissue injuries or fractures. In fact, two out of three seniors who fall will fall again in six months. When a senior survives a fall, even without a scratch, the event can be so traumatic that they develop a fear of falling. The effect on their confidence can leave them second-guessing their physical abilities, and limiting their physical activity.
“Gait belts like the Grip-n-Assist provide critical support to the back and abdomen by reducing discomfort and pressure on muscles and joints while keeping the spinal column aligned for better and healthier posture,” exclaimed Chiropractic Orthopedist Dr. Kristeen Lester.
With the help of gait belts, seniors can regain confidence while recovering from a fall. Gait belts are a safe and effective instrument in aiding physical therapy, providing just the right amount of support during rehabilitation to help speed recovery time. The Grip-n-Assist gait belt is sturdy yet comfortable with adjustable straps for versatility and patented bone handles for maximum support. Seniors unsure of their physical ability can experience the mobility they desire while strengthening their muscles and joints, improving self-reliance and confidence.
