The G-LIFT is designed to protect health care workersthat are required to wear heavy lead aprons and or jackets as a part of their duties.
The G-LIFT system is a fixed device with the upper shoulder bar plate being adjustable by means of a spring pull pin on the lower back part. By pulling the pinout you can adjust the upper shoulder bar plate up or down as required to keep the aluminum bars off your shoulders.
The aluminum bars should clear the shoulders by approximately 1.5 inches but must not rest on the shoulders.
The system is designed for the hip belt to fit on top of the hips and not at the waistline and also comes with a removable lumbar pad.
The lumbar pad comes with a medium density foam core that can be replaced with a harder foam core if preferred.
The G-LIFT is based on well established orthopedic principles and when worn correctly the G-LIFT transfers the weight of the heavy lead apron or jacket to the pelvis.
The rigid construction requires no contact with the neck or shoulders completely unloading the cervical spine and upper extremities providing freedom of movement while preventing painful and debilitating overuse injuries.
