Leg harnesses are low-profile and discreet, and are a good alternative to thigh abductor blocks/hip belts for users who prefer their positioning equipment to be discreet.  

The harness holds each leg at the inner thigh, providing exceptional resistance to pelvic rotation and obliquity, without limiting anterior movement or pressing on the bladder.

Leg Harnesses are sold in pairs.

Benefits of the Leg Harness

Reduces abduction/rotation and thrusting

Leg Harnesses can be used to help solve a number of positioning issues including leg abduction, pelvic rotation and thrusting, without putting pressure on the abdomen or groin.

Laminar Pad for comfort and pressure distribution

The leg harness contains a Laminar Pad in each strap which is designed to redistribute pressure without twiting or wrinkling, so your legs stay comfortable all day.  

Easily Adjustable

Leg Harnesses can be adjusted easily by the user or caregiver, using the D-ring straps on each leg. 

Applications

Leg Harnesses can be used to counteract leg abduction, thrusting, pelvic rotation and obliquities. Here are some examples of how Leg Harnesses can be used: 

Leg Abduction

  • Counters adverse affects of sling seating

  • Discrete unobtrusive way to obtain abduction

  • Top strap attaches to back post at a level slightly inferior to ASIS and PSIS

  • Bottom strap passes under the thigh and attaches to seat rail

  • Degree of abduction influenced by how far forward along the seat rail the bottom strap is attached

  • D ring-pull tightening devices help to position user firmly into back of seat

Thrusting

  • Leg harness prevents hip extension by holding the femurs into the seat

  • Top strap attaches to back post at a level slightly inferior to ASIS and PSIS

  • For more aggressive positioning, attach top strap lower down the back post

  • Bottom strap passes under the thigh and attaches to seat rail

  • Laminar padding along the soft tissues of the thigh dissipates the thrusting energy
