The new and improved PeakWorks Trauma Straps are designed with attention to detail. The straps are enclosed in bright orange packages for easy visual
identification and sealed with hook and loop closure for easy removal in time of need. Trauma straps are included with each Peakpro harness purchased and are
sold as an accessory set for an easy add-on to any harness.
Why is a Trauma Strap necessary?
When a person falls and their fall protection system brings them to a safe stop, the individual is left suspended for a period of time before rescue. This can cause
blood circulation to be cut out and blood to pool in the veins. Once rescued, the individual is lowered to the ground and laid back; this can lead to a condition
called “orthostatic intolerance”, in which the blood flow is released too quickly to the heart and which can result in a heart attack. Trauma straps can eliminate
this potential condition by allowing the individual, while suspended in the air, to quickly release the straps, adjust them, and stand in them, thus allowing the
blood to flow freely while awaiting rescue.
