The Careva Harness System provides postural support to prevent a passenger falling forward or to the side. This helps ensure the ordinary three-point safety belt works at an optimum level. The harness works in conjunction with the vehicle’s original seat and seatbelt, and can be fitted in all vehicles with an opening between seat base and back (including child seats and wheelchairs). There are combinations of the harness system that can be used in taxis and community transport vehicles.
The Careva Harness System from Mobility Engineering includes 4 core components:
Spinal Belt – The Spinal Belt is the foundation for the other parts of the system and is always fitted first. This goes around the car seat and secures at the back of the seat.
Shoulder Harness – The Shoulder Harness is used in the same way as the Thoracic Belt to fix the upper body and to prevent the passenger from falling forwards or to the side.
Pelvic T-Belt – The Pelvic T-Belt is used to hold the pelvis to the back of the seat to ensure good positioning.
Combi Harness – The Combi Harness is a combination of the shoulder harness and a pelvic T-belt. The shoulder straps are fastened on the front rather than the side as the standard shoulder harness.
Thoracic Belt – The Thoracic Belt is used to position the upper body and prevent the passenger from falling forwards or to the side.
Note: A strict process must be followed before special needs car seats and harnesses can be used in South Australia. Read more
