General Details

Caution: Chest / Postural Harness

Chest harnesses provide postural support for people whilst they are sitting in wheelchairs or other seats.
When used correctly a chest harness can help a person to sit comfortably and safely for long periods. They can also assist people to use their arms and hands to the best of their abilities.
However, if not used correctly chest harnesses can become a SAFETY RISK.
There is a risk of the person not being able to breathe if:
• The lower straps of the harness become loose and the harness rides up near the person’s neck blocking their windpipe.
• The person slides down in their chair so that the harness is around their neck and blocks their windpipe.
• The shoulder straps of the harness cut across the person’s neck blocking the windpipe. This can happen if the side supports on the chair that support the person’s trunk are not in place.
• The harness is done up so tightly that the person cannot take a breath.
