Careva Harness System
The Careva Harness System prevents the person falling forwards or to the side and can assist with achieving good vehicle seatbelt fit. It can be fitted in all vehicles with an opening between seat base and back. The system uses a spinal belt as its foundation for all other parts. It is installed first and wraps around the vehicle seat and is secured at the back of the seat.
These options are available depending on the person’s needs:
Pelvic t-belt: used to hold the pelvis to the back of the seat for good positioning.
Thoracic belt: used to position the upper body and prevent the person from falling forwards or to the side.
Shoulder harness: used in the same way as the thoracic belt to support the upper body and to prevent the person from falling forwards or to the side.
Combi harness: a combination of the shoulder harness and the pelvic t-belt. The shoulder straps are fastened on the front rather than the side as the standard shoulder harness.
Important information for parents: The Careva Harness System is a specialty product designed for occupants with disabilities and medical conditions. This type of product should be prescribed by an allied health professional, such as an occupational therapist and physiotherapist.
The Careva Harness System is supplied by specialist disability suppliers and there are legal requirements to comply with when using it.
