How to use a Suspension Trauma Relief Strap

Should a fall occur with the wearer suspended in the safety harness, suspension trauma (orthostatic shock) may occur. Suspension trauma, also known as harness hang syndrome (HHS), is caused by blood collecting in the wearer's legs while suspended in the harness. Blood flow is restricted to the brain and may cause the wearer to faint. If the wearer is not rescued quickly, this may result in death or injury as the brain does not receive the oxygen it requires.

The Suspension Trauma Relief Strap provides a solution to relieve the stress of the harness and allow the wearer to 'stand' thereby restoring blood flow. The relief strap can be fitted to the harness on request.
