Miller’s 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 that may initially result in unconsciousness. If not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur. The Relief Step Safety Device is designed to provide a short-term solution for alleviating suspension trauma. When used, it provides support and enhances blood circulation until rescue by permitting the user to move and flex leg muscles. It is small and lightweight and attaches to any brand of full body harness. Utilizing two Relief Step Safety Devices (one for each leg/foot) assures greater comfort until rescue is completed.
