WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Chair Lateral Supports are designed to help stop people leaning forward, or to the side, without applying a full restraint.
The foam Supports are fitted to the wheelchair with one on each side. There are two connecting straps that are done up around the back of the chair. They are primarily designed to use on wheelchairs, but they may be suitable for some other chairs.
The Supports are made from a firm foam, with convolutions on the curved top. This is to help prevent a pressure sore under the arm pit, if the person is resting on this section.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Chair Lateral Supports are suitable for people who need lateral support or fall sideways when sitting down in a chair or wheelchair.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place the two Supports inside the arm rests on the wheelchair. Place the two connecting straps around the back of the chair. After the person has sat down, raise the Supports up so they are just under the armpits and the arms are on the outside so that if they lean forward, the raised curve section will help prevent them leaning too far.
When the person needs to stand up, the Supports can be loosened off or removed from the chair to allow the person to lean forward during the standing process.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Foam, plastic, 4-way stretch breathable waterproof material, webbing zip.
This product is a positioning device only and not to be used as a restraint. This product may not be suitable for everyone. People using this device must be kept under observation, and if they are leaning forward or sideways too much, they should be repositioned correctly in their chair.
