Sometimes a wheelchair user may have a tendency to slump forward and needs a way to remain in a more upright position while still being comfortable and safe.
A wheelchair torso support can assist with this by providing straps that go over the shoulders and a waistband that holds the wheelchair user comfortably in place.
It doesn’t restrict movement or use of the arms and can easily be undone, torso supports are usually foam padded and easily wiped clean with a velcro attachment and the waistband is adjustable to suit the user.
They are usually priced around £18
