The Lap Belt/Shoulder Sash Belt is designed to help prevent patients falling from chairs or to position their hips correctly on pressure cushions.
About the Lap Belt / Shoulder Sash Belt
This Belt can be used on wheelchairs, dining chairs and some armchairs. It is fitted to the chair and normally remains in position on the chair when it is vacated. Special sizes can be made on request for use on larger chairs.
The shorter part of the Belt with the female buckle should be lassoed around the chair frame near to the pelvic area. The longer part of the belt with the male buckle is lassoed around the other side of the chair on the opposite pelvic area. When the patient is sitting in position, the buckle should be on the side of the patient. The belt can be adjusted to size by moving the longer webbing through the male buckle. Squeeze the side release buckle to undo the belt. The Hook & Loop Tape version simply does up by fastening the Hook & Loop Tape together.
