The Evoflex Padded Pelvic Positioning Belt is designed to keep its shape and stay where it belongs for maximum stability, control, and ease of use.

The Evoflex Pelvic Positioning Belt combines the comfort of a padded hip belt with a new stiffened end strap that enhances performance. Stiffened yet flexible end straps made from a tough thermoplastic resin stay upright when the belt is opened, and can be pivoted forwards or back during transfers or when not in use.

This material prevents the belt from twisting, and stops it from falling into the wheels, which can make the belt dirty and cause it to become damaged. The end straps are highly resistant to abrasion, tearing, and temperature extremes, adopting high-specification materials originally designed for alpine sports equipment.

Suitable for all wheelchair users, the Evoflex can help the user gain more efficiency from their pushes, maintain better balance and improve functional reach. The Evoflex can also reduce leg abductation, so that legs sit more closely together.   

Offering unmatched versatility, the Evoflex can be installed on almost any style of wheelchair with a variety of mounting options to suit the individual needs of the user.

Evoflex - Different from the Usual Hip Belt

What are the Hassles Hip Belts?

Normal 'floppy' belts... 

  • Fall into the wheels/onto the ground and get dirty 
  • Become tangled in slings and clothing
  • Get damaged due to twisting and stretching

Floppy belts - a breeding ground for bacteria

Microbiological testing on wheelchairs has shown that Pseudomonas and other bacteria were found in an increasing number from the surface of the cushion downwards, which is the area where floppy belts tend to fall when released.

How does the Evoflex Benefit you?

The Evoflex..

  • Won’t twist or fall into the wheels
  • Fits into even the tightest places
  • Gives a closer fit for better stability
  • Can be pivoted forwards/back when not in use
  • Is resistant to abrasion, tearing, and temperature extremes

Josh Dueck's experience with Evoflex Pelvic Belt and Stayflex Shoulder Harness

A video of Josh Dueck sharing his experience of using a Bodypoint Evoflex pelvic positioning belt and a Stayflex shoulder harness where he talks about how reluctant he was to use a belt, and how using a Bodypoint Evoflex changed his views. It not only enabled him to move dynamically but also gave him controlled movement. 

Decision Guide

Measuring for an Evoflex

Measure for the Evoflex by measuring the sitting hip width across the greater trochanters as shown in the diagram, then find your size by using a flexible measuring tape: measure the distance over the body - this corresponds to the belts padded length. See the new standard to describe pelvic positioning in belt section.

Measuring

 

Buckle Options

The Evoflex is available with 3 different buckles: 

Metal Push Button

The metal push button buckle is only available on the extra-small Evoflex, it requires a firm push to open and is good for users who tend to accidentally release their belts.

Push Button and Security Cover

The Push Button buckle features a large recessed button that is designed to prevent accidental opening, but does not require much hand strengh to press. 

The optional Push Button Security Cover fits directly over the push button. This cover is extra-secure and can only be opened with the end of a ball-point pen.    

Rehab Latch 

The Rehab Latch is the easiest buckle to open for users with limited hand strength, and is simply opened by pushing up the latch, like an aircraft seatbelt.  

Mounting Options

The Evoflex comes complete with screws which can be used to mount it  directly to the frame of any wheechair. 

Alternatively, the Evoflex can be mounted using a Mounting Bracket Kit, or a Band Clamp, sold separately. See the Mounting Hardware page for further details

Sub ASIS Pad (Optional Extra)

Sub ASIS pads are placed on the inside of the belt using hook-and-loop and create two firm points of contact for the pelvis for enhanced stability and to minimise abdominal compresion.  These pads reduce pressure on the bladder and lower abdomen, and are also helpful for people with a slight build who find that hip belts tend to fit loosely.

The Sub ASIS pads are available in two sizes, Small for Extra-small/Small belts, and Large for Medium/Large belts.
