Loading the Freedom Undervest properly will greatly reduce the risk of damaging your driveline and eliminates the need for irritating adhesive anchors. There are 7 easy steps:
1. Place your external LVAD equipment on a firm surface. Be sure to have your wires and driveline untangled and in position.
2. Put on your Undervest while the LVAD equipment remains on the firm surface. Please be careful not drop your LVAD peripheral equipment.
3. Open the long front pouch of the Undervest by pulling the tabs in the front and at each side, for access to the internal pockets.
4. Reach down through the opening in the Undervest to grab one of your batteries.
