Standard seat belts are not suitable for many passengers with special needs. The wearer is able to 'wriggle' out of the seat belt or, into a position such that the seat belt may become dangerous.
Features and Benefits of the Hemco Special Needs Harness:
- The wearer is unable to remove the harness. In exceptional cases, an extra 'anti-submarine' strap can be added to prevent the wearer sliding down and forward.
- The Small Special Needs Harness must only be used for children weighing under 36kg, as the harness is designed to attach to the existing child seat anchorage in the vehicle.
- The Medium and Large Special Needs Harnesses are designed to attach to an adult seat belt anchorage. The anchorage is made using a snap fitting and eye bolt for quick release.
- These harnesses should only be used for users with special needs, they are not a substitute for standard seatbelt or child restraint.
