Chair Belt


The Chair Belt is used as a positioning device to help someone in a chair.

About the Chair Belt

It is made in two sections sewn together: one part to go around the patient’s waist, and the other part to be fastened together with a buckle behind the chair. The Belt will adjust to fit wheelchairs and lounge chairs. This Belt is easy to move with the patient from a lounge to a commode chair and can be used as a Gait Belt during the transfer.

To Use

As this Belt can be undone from the front, it is very easy to use. Depending upon the patient’s individual sitting position, the Belt can be worn around the pelvic area, below the waist. The two side straps should be wound around the back of the chair frame near to the pelvic area. Then buckle them together behind the chair. On small frame chairs it may be necessary to wind one or both straps around the legs of the chair. This is to get rid of some slack in the strap.

When used on a wheelchair with removable arms, make sure the straps are wrapped around the main chair frame. Do not wrap them around the removable sections.
