The PivotFit™ Shoulder Harness represents the latest in innovative design from Bodypoint. Distributing pressure across a greater surface area than our traditional H-style Harness, the PivotFit Shoulder Harness offers a body-contouring shape for optimal support and a comfortable fit

Continuous smooth padding prevents dirt and debris getting trapped in the harness. The PivotFit harness can be purchased in a Dynamic or Standard style, and with either front pull adjustment or rear pull adjustment to suit the needs of most users. 

As the name suggests, the star feature of the PivotFit is the pivot buckle on the sternum strap, which prevents the harness becoming twisted and uncomfortable during movement.

For a more comfortable and practical alternative to an H-style harness, the PivotFit has it all.

Benefits of the PivotFit

PivotFit

Ergonomic fit

The curved straps of the PivotFit contour to shape of the body, and have a larger surface area than traditional H-style harnesses.

This means that the straps redistribute pressure more evenly, making the harness more comfortable to wear and reducing the chances of skin damage due to resistance against the straps. 

PivotFit

Pivot buckle for comfort

The Pivot buckle was developed by Bodypoint® to tackle a common problem with H-style harnesses twisting and bunching up during use, a problem that is uncomfortable for the user and damaging for the material of the harness. 

Pivot buckles move with the user, allowing the pads of the harness to stay flat against the chest even when the user is twisting around.

PivotFit

Dual-zone elasticity (PivotFit dynamic only)

The PivotFit Dynamic harness has dual-zone elasticity, with one elastic zone in the upper part of the strap, and a second stabilising zone in the lower panel. 

The upper elastic zone of stretch allows the user to lean forward in order to perform daily activities, and the lower panel stabilises the botton half of the PivotFit so the harness does not ride up during use.

Shoulder Harness Strap Guides

Optimize the mounting position of chest and shoulder harnesses and use them on more types of chairs with Bodypoint Strap Guides. Our simple, easy-to-install solution provides maximum adjustability and allows harnesses to be used where they couldn’t before – on chairs with low, curved or contoured backs.

With Bodypoint Strap Guides, you can fine-tune the height, horizontal position, and angle of strap attachment to even out pressure distribution over the shoulder, improving support and comfort for the user. Adjust each side independently for a custom fit.

Available in two lengths to accommodate different backrest sizes and shapes. Compatible with front- and rear-pull strap styles and all Bodypoint end fittings. Attach directly to backrests with included M6 fastener kit* and spacers or use optional Strap Guide Mounting Adapters (sold separately) to increase mounting and adjustment options. Strap Guides sold in pairs.

The Bodypoint difference is in the details:

  • Simple, easy-to-install design
  • Compatible with a variety of backrests, harnesses, and end fittings
  • Long mounting slots increase adjustability
  • Thin design fits into tight spaces
  • Integrated holes allow easy harness attachment without extra drilling
  • Super strong spring steel absorbs shock, giving users greater comfort and preventing backrest damage

* Standard fasteners compatible with most backrests. For attachment to Permobil Corpus chairs, use the HW101P Fastener Pack, sold separately
