The Careva postural belts are very helpful if you need extra support when seated in a vehicle seat or in a wheelchair. It provides a correct seating position to allow a safe use of the safety belt.
The belt system comprises a spinal belt which is fastened vertically over the backrest. The postural belt is then installed in the grooves of the spinal belt.
Remember that when in a vehicle you should always use the Careva postural belt system together with the vehicles standard seat belt.
Vehicle positioning harnesses can support children and adults with behavioural and postural needs. For those who like to “escape” from a harness, we can upgrade the buckles to a ‘pen-release” to alleviate this problem.
The seat Belt Buckle Cover is used to prevent the passenger from undoing their vehicle seat belt buckle. These must be prescribed by an OT and are often combined with a behavioural harness.
Having difficulty reaching the seatbelt? This product is designed for persons with reduced mobility to access the seat belt with less twisting and strain. They are easy to attach to any seatbelt.
If you have problems trying to clip in the seat belt, whether it’s a mobility issue or the latch is too low to grasp, a seat belt extension can be used. These extensions are available in various lengths to suit many vehicles.
