The FreeTech™ Harness is a figure-8 style fall protection harness that integrates our patent-pending SwitchPoint™ System for improving the comfort and mobility of a suspended worker in a post-fall scenario. This unique release mechanism provides a means for the user to safely and easily transfer their body weight from the dorsal connector on the upper back to the front waist location of the harness to reorient into a seated position. This repositioning aids the wearer by allowing increased freedom and mobility, which may help delay the onset of orthostatic intolerance, also referred to as suspension trauma. The FreeTech design and function provide a more comfortable position and allow additional freedom of movement to a fallen and suspended worker while awaiting rescue.

CHIP MACDONALD FROM BEST SAFETY, LLC BELIEVES THE FREETECH HARNESS TECHNOLOGY IS A GAME-CHANGER IN THE PFA MARKET. READ HIS FULL REVIEW HERE.
“Now that the FreeTech™ Harness with its patented sit-posture, repositioning device is a reality, we in the S&H industry cannot ethically continue relying on the semi-effective, after-market technology of “relief straps” (R-straps) to prevent or even delay the cardio-pulmonary debilitation of suspension trauma (ST) any longer.”
