Wheelchair - strap that holds wheelchair cushion in place

Wheelchair transfers are easier when the cushion doesn’t slide around or bend

Description
A strap with Velcro closure is attached between the wheelchair frame and the seat upholstery and is attached around the wheelchair cushion.

Authors comments
The strap holds the cushion in place. It makes transfers easier. The broader and smoother the material of the strap, the easier it is to make the transfer.
