A new angle on hip belts
In surveys, therapists most often report setting hip belts at a 45-degree angle to the wheelchair seat rail.
However, several leading clinicians and our experience suggest that for most users, that angle is not optimal. We recommend manually feeling for the best belt angle, as shown in this short video.
1) Push and hold the user in a correct, comfortable position.
2) Look at your hands to determine the angle and mounting position for the belt.
