FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
The 4 Point Side Pull Padded Hip Belt from Spex with four points of attachment to the wheelchair offers superior anterior support for the user’s pelvis suitable for enhanced positioning requirements.
The four attachment points mean that the main straps position the belt and the subordinate straps anchor the belt in position for enhanced support and prevents the belt from sliding up into the abdomen or twisting.
The Side Pull tensioning function of the hip belt is ideal to be operated by the caregiver and tensions from the rear of the pad pulling toward the centre. This means there is more ‘force’ which is great for enhanced positioning, particularly for clients with high muscle tone. The hip belt counters pelvic rotation by allowing the caregiver to position one side of the pelvis, lock it in place and then position on the other side.
Manufactured with top precision quality, this hip belt has comfortable cushioned pads with unique soft edge binding.
