In cases where the seating base alone is inadequate for pelvic stabilization, the use of additional supports is vital. Daher’s specially designed padded Pelvic Stabilizing Belts feature durable ¼” neoprene laminated material with Lycra cloth on both sides. The Lycra strip sewn around the edge of the pads give a smooth finish, preventing skin abrasion and ensures sustained client comfort by the distribution of support-induced pressure. Visit our Industrial Sewing page for more information.
All Pelvic Stabilizing Belt styles are available in three different strap widths: 1", 1.5" and 2". For the 1.5" and 2" strap widths, dual-release buckles can be replaced with an automotive-style seat-belt buckle. Due to the design of this buckle, adjustment is limited to one side.
Daher Manufacturing Inc.'s Pelvic Stabilizing Belts are bi-laterally adjustable and are secured into position with Velcro strips, allowing the caregiver to place the belt loosely over the individual. By pulling unilaterally on the D-ring tabs, the client can be slowly and firmly positioned and aligned into the support base. This feature, combined with the padding on the belt, greatly increases sustained client tolerance and acceptance of the seating system.
The padded belts are easily attached or removed using the quick-release center buckle. An added feature is the ability to accommodate different clothing thicknesses by a simple strap adjustment using D-rings.
All three styles of padded Pelvic Stabilizing Belts come with a choice of 1” (small), 1.5” (medium), or 2” (large) ribbed strapping to reduce buckle and tri-glide slippage; click to view instructions about looping the tri-glides. Alternate lengths of the ribbed strapping are available upon request to accommodate various client sizes.
All Pelvic Stabilizing Belts are easily cleaned by washing with mild soap and warm water.
Ways to mount a Pelvic Stabilizing Belt to a wheelchair or seating shell system:
- Use an Attachment Kit (click to view)
- Screw the webbed straps directly into the tubing. Be sure to cauterize raw edges to prevent fraying.
Note: Only latex-free materials are used.
WARNING: Pelvic Stabilizing Belts do not replace seat belts as approved by the Department of Transport.
