Providing safer travel and management of these loved ones when travelling in the car or other means of transport.

Alternatively, this harness can also be used to offer postural support and assist in seating the occupant in an upright sitting position for persons with physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy (CP) and other significant physical disabilities or complex needs where extra support and positioning is required during travel.

The body harness is worn before entering the vehicle. It is fitted with a waist belt and chest strap which fasten behind the passenger’s back with side-release buckles.

This harness will fit both single and bench seats. Suitable for bus, plane and taxi travel and children in Hip Spicas!

Access is required where the seat back joins the seat cushion as a ‘gap’ is necessary to pass the vertical fixing strap through from the front to the rear of the seat back.

This vehicle harness is classed as a low risk medical device and carries the CE mark and complies with the requirements of MDD 93/42 EEC. Please note that this vehicle harness is not classed as safety harness but as a medical device for postural support. To comply with safety regulations, the vehicle safety belt must always be worn over the top of the harness.

Testimonials
“I just wanted to let you know that the car harness has been a great success with my client and it has made an enormous difference to his quality of life and especially his ability to get out of the house and back to school this term.”

Occupational Therapist, NSW Australia

The Houdini 22 is working really well for this active client. What the family really loves about it is, it only has 2 buckles when attaching him into the car.

This child gets agitated if it takes too long to transfer him in or out of the car, and this harness is really quick to use.

We put the torso section of the harness on him inside the house (where he can’t run away) and then hold on to the harness while walking him out to the car and just click it in. We love this as it is really easy to use.

When he gets to school, he is always in a hurry – we just unclick it and he runs into the classroom and the teacher takes the harness off!
