Ambulation Shorts


MedCo Technology Ambulation Shorts allow caregivers to safely and simply ambulate a patient while reducing the risk of patient or caregiver injuries from falls. Our Ambulation Shorts are constructed in both Single Patient and Apex Reusable fabrics, which both feature unparalleled body contouring comfort.

Our Ambulation Shorts may be placed on the patient while sitting or while lying in bed, similar to dressing activities. For placement while lying in bed, they are often placed using Slide Sheets. Our Ambulation Shorts are equipped with storage pockets designed to contain the straps while placing or removing the shorts.

Once in place, the Ambulation Shorts are easily to tighten and fit to the patient using our custom tension buckles and straps at the leg, hip, and waist. These tension buckles are easy to adjustby the caregiver or patient to ensure maximum comfort and stability.

Multiple strap attachment points make it easy to connect to overhead or portable floor lifts. While in use, the strap storage pocket also assists with tension and provides a support mechanism for the chest and back.

MedCo Technology Ambulation Shorts are designed to protect patient privacy and dignity. They allow indwelling foley catheters and feature open sides for patients with multiple lines, drains or chest tubes. The fabric is designed to prevent riding up, binding, or bunching that may cause painful pressure areas during ambulation tasks. Ambulation Shorts may be used with any overhead or portable floor lift, walking frame, or ambulation system that features loop attachment points.
