Soft corset around user and child – simple way for a wheelchair user to hold a small child on lap

Description
The largest available size of a soft corset is placed around the user and the child. This way the user even can transfer with the child.

Authors comments
The user feels the soft corset is easier to use and better than a baby carrier like Babybjörn. The child can stand up in a Babybjörn, which triggers spasticity in the user.
