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.

This Houdini 28 harness is similar to the Houdini 27 except that the seat attachment straps go vertically around the vehicle seat.

To fit the harness access is required between the seat back and seat cushion.

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. Bears the CE mark and complies with the requirements of MDD 93/42 EEC

It is advisable to carry out a safety and risk assessment to first consider the problems involved and what the situation would be if the passenger is not wearing a special needs harness. Could they be in danger to themselves and to other passengers in the vehicle or even other drivers on the road if they are not safely seated during travel?
