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.
