The Miller 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 flow is restricted to the brain and other major organs that may initially result in unconsciousness. If not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur. The Miller Relief Step is designed to provide a short-term solution in preventing suspension trauma.
- Provides support and enhances blood circulation until rescue – permitting the ability to move and flex leg muscles
- Small and lightweight; attaches to any brand full-body harness
- Two Relief Steps assure greater comfort until rescue is completed
