Choosing a Padded Hip Belt

Precise Part Numbers for Better Fit

Bodypoint padded hip belt part numbers put you in control for a more reliable belt fit.

Sizing is shown in the charts below. You can easily tell the webbing width and padded length from looking at the size code (e.g., M46).

Webbing width for all padded hip belts: 

  • Small = 2.5cm (1”) wide webbing 
  • Medium = 4cm (1-1/2”) wide
  • Large = 5cm (2”) wide

The padded length (the part of the belt that is up against the body in front of the chair) is indicated by the numeral after the webbing size. For example, an HB205-M46 has 1-1/2” wide webbing and a total padded length of 46cm.

you need, as shown in this video.
Now you can select the belt size that most closely matches what the user needs. See the sizing tables above to convert between centimeters and inches, if needed.
