When a fall occurs, a person becomes suspended in a harness and remains both vertical and sedentary for a long 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. This is called orthostatic intolerance, also known as suspension trauma, and may initially result in unconsciousness. If not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur, sometimes within minutes. The average fall rescue time is 15 minutes. The Miller® Relief Step™ is designed to provide a short-term solution in preventing suspension trauma. • Allows the user to "stand up" in their harness, permitting the ability to move and flex leg muscles • Provides support and enhances blood circulation until rescue Order No. SAK162 Mfg. No. 9909X/12

• Small and lightweight, can be attached to any brand of full-body harness • Utilizing two devices per harness (one for each leg/foot) is recommended to assure greater user comfort
