A range of padded, chest harnesses which feature optional dynamic positioning to allow the user some movement during activity. They are designed for attachment to the frame of a wheelchair. Suitable for use on wheelchairs with a solid back system only. Available in four sizes. Suitable for children and adults.

General Details

Caution

Because of their potential to exacerbate deformity, postural support products need regular monitoring to ensure that their positioning and use remains appropriate to the users needs and body shape.

A chest harness should always be used in conjunction with a hip belt and always requires a solid back system.

A chest belt is designed to be placed across the chest, just below the armpits, to provide mild upper torso support. Never place a chest belt across the abdomen.

Extra product information

The harnesses and chest belt are black in colour, padding is constructed from low slip, laminated closed cell foam covered in a breathable knit fabric. They are shaped to conform to natural body contours. Moulded plastic buckles are black in colour and have side squeeze opening.

The length of each vertical piece of the harness is adjusted from the back of the harness. A horizontal strap with single pull adjustment connects these vertical pieces at one of five optional heights. Alternative configurations such as X, H and backpack are possible on some models. The harnesses feature a dynamic positioning strap at the top of each vertical harness piece. This allows the user some movement within the harness. If this movement is not desired the strap can be adjusted to eliminate the elastic stretch.

Hardware provided as standard to attach the chest harness to the wheelchair are Tri End Plates and Camlocks. The Tri End Plates are constructed from steel and powder coated black and used to attach the harness to the wheelchair frame. They can be bolted to the frame, mounted on a flat surface with a spacer or used to thread the webbing around the frame without the need to drill into the frame. Camlocks are metal and plastic and attach the top webbing to the solid back system.
