A strap that secures feet to the wheelchair foot bar.

Users comments
The strap is reasonably discreet and blends in with the wheelchair and feet. The user usually wears black shoes. The user experiences severe spasticity of the legs and feet in the morning. The strap keeps the legs in place. It even works well for downhill use, allowing the user to maintain speed without worrying because feet are well secured.

Be careful not to secure the strap too tightly, to avoid red marks.
