Spex H-Harness

Minimalist Anterior Harness

The Spex H-Harness is a minimalist anterior harness option featuring excellent adjustment, superior support, and a comfortable pad design.

With a curved pad construction and unique shape, it is designed to follow natural contours of the body making this a very comfortable option and provides superior support for most wheelchair users.

The H-Harness’s soft padded neoprene support surface, provides superior comfort for the user. The high-quality neoprene material offers the perfect amount of stretch to allow the user to move within the support and remain functional.

The H-Harness features a cross strap that is positioned low on the user’s trunk for increased safety.

This harness is a positioning device only. Do not use as a safety restraint in vehicles.


Anterior Trunk Positioning Tips

Anterior upper body support is used to maintain spinal alignment over a stable pelvis. Increasing trunk support for proximal stability has been proven to increase upper extremity function.
These are sometimes necessary to maintain an upright trunk and head for functional use of arms, vision, breathing and feeding for individuals who pull or fall forward.

  • Attaching the lower straps of the harness to the backrest shell rather than the wheelchair frame provides a more snug fit.
  • Shoulder strap guides hold the harness in position over the user’s shoulders.
