Medifab's most secure vehicle harness - will keep any Houdini's from escaping from their vehicle seat!
Vehicle positioning harness for children and adults with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Down Syndrome, Asperger’s disorder, developmental delay or other challenging behavioural needs where the person has problems with attention and safety. 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 Houdini 31 Harness offers greater support due to a front PVC pad that is attached around the individual's torso with two straps fitted with anti-escape buckles.
Fits most types of vehicle seating including single & double seats. 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. Carries 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?
A safety webbing slicer is included with every vehicle harness and must be kept in the vehicle as a safety precaution.
Designed to perform various support and comfort functions for long-term bedridden people
Proper positioning is crucial in the prevention of pressure ulcers. Due to the material it is comprised of, Poz’in’Form cushions offer all the required features in bedsore prevention.
The combination of a micropore fabric and a bi-elastic and breathable Pharmatex or Lenzing FR cover offers maximum breathability of the cushion.
Cushion filling is made of thin microfiber which perfectly fits the body shape, ensuring optimal pressure distribution, and contributes to a significant reduction in friction and shearing forces.
Poz’in’Form cushions are designed to perform various support and comfort functions for long-term bedridden people. The microfibers prevent from creep effects that are regularly observed in classical positioning and from early deterioration of the support. The various forms, sizes and models of Poz’in’Form allow for a wide range of positioning possibilities.
