Pelvic positioning

Pelvis controls the position of the trunk, head and extremities as it is the key area of the body for postural alignment. The seat, back and the foot rest are three primary support surfaces for wheelchair users. By the use of anterior support belt pelvic stabilization can be greatly improved. These belts may resist forward tilt of the pelvis, prevent sliding and bring the pelvis down and back into the seating system. Buckles are lighter in weight with round edges which improves comfort and prevents snagging on clothing & are superior in strength and durability as constructed of Chrome plated steel.
