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. The combination of the existing vehicle safety belt and the secondary harness offers added security for the passenger.

If I can’t pass the strap between the seat and the backrest, what can I do?
