Wheelchair Hip Restraint
- Important Information
Note: This item has been superseded by the Chair Belt for Sliders
These newer items are more discreet than this Wheelchair Hip Restraint.
Place the Pad over the patient’s hips. The hip webbing on both sides goes around the back of the chair. The groin webbing is placed under the chair. Both hip webbings are passed through the most appropriate groin webbing loop, to give a good fit.
The hip webbing is then wound around the lower frame as much as possible, but allowing enough for the double Hook & Loop Tape section to thread through the plastic loop on one side of the hip webbing before fastening. The webbing should be in front of the vertical support frame, so that the patient cannot push the webbing off the end of the horizontal tilt bar.
Do not neglect good nursing care. Continually monitor patients to ensure the correct item is being used. If not suitable, worn or defective, contact the manufacturer for advice.

Restraints are a prescribed item. Care Facilities such as Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Aged Care Facilities etc., may order this item. For private sales to a family member, written authorisation is needed from a qualified therapist or medical doctor, approving the use of the correct Restraint for the patient's current condition. Remember if the patient's condition changes, then a different type of Restraint may be required. It is necessary to ensure the family are aware of the proper use of Restraints, as these can be dangerous if not used correctly.
