Decision Guide

Size Selection and Mounting

The Band-it is designed to secure around the ankle, with the body of the device extending over the top of the client’s shoes to distribute pressure over a larger area.

It is important that a client wear shoes and socks during Band-it use.

Measure the circumference of the ankle, two finger widths above the malleoli. When measuring, the client should be wearing shoes, socks and applicable orthoses.

Extra Small 4-6" (10-15cm)
Small 6-9" (15-23cm)
Medium 9-11" (23-28cm)
Large 11-13" (28-33cm)

 

To allow for greater range of motion at the ankle, place the mounting hardware away from the foot; for less motion, mount the hardware closer to the sides of the foot. Hardware placement should be made in collaboration with a therapist or other qualified health care provider.

As with all positioning devices, perform regular skin checks to monitor skin condition and promptly inform the client’s healthcare provider of any redness or open areas.

A set of tri-end fittings is included with each VARILITE Hip Belt, Contoured Chest Harness, and Band-It, and can be attached to the wheelchair by bolting directly to the frame or by wrapping the webbing around the frame. Dual tri-end has two screw holes.
