Baby harness

A harness intended for prams/baby carriages fits perfectly as a harness for the wheelchair. It works well as a “handle” to lift the child up from the floor.

Description
The parent uses an ordinary safety harness to make it easier to lift the child up and down from the floor. To lift the child the parent just needs to grasp the five-point harness. The parent’s other arm remains free to maintain balance (photos 2 and 3).

The parent also mounted attachments for the harness on the wheelchair backrest so the belt can also be used as a seat belt (photo 1).

Model: Brio safety harness.
