The Relief Step safety device alleviates the effects of orthostatic intolerance, also known as suspension trauma. If a fall occurs, a person becomes suspended in a harness and remains both vertical and sedentary for a period of time, causing blood to "pool" in the veins of the legs. Subsequently, blood is restricted to the brain and other major organs and may initially result in unconsciousness. If not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur. The Relief Step is designed to provide a short-term solution to alleviate suspension trauma. Small and lightweight, the Relief Step can be attached to any brand full body harness. By utilizing two Relief Steps, one for each leg/foot, a greater level of comfort is assured until rescue is completed.
