Wheelchair Seat Belt Review
If you’re buying a standard electric wheelchair, most likely your wheelchair will come with a simple seat belt. However, if you’re buying an electric-powered manual wheelchair then chances are that you’ll need to purchase your seat belt separately from your wheelchair. In this instance, you should keep an eye on the safety features, such as the presence of an appropriate seat belt, and always check the instructions that come with your wheelchair before buying it. If you know how, you can even get advice from someone who knows first hand what a good seatbelt should do.
If you don’t want to purchase your chairseatbelt separately, then you can opt to install your own seatbelt on your wheelchair. This may sound like a lot of work but it really isn’t. All you need is a little bit of assembly, and you’ll have an easy time installing your own seatbelt in your electric wheelchair.
It is important to make sure that you follow all the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your wheelchair. There are many manuals available and even videos to help guide you through the process. It’s important to make sure that your seatbelt fits properly in order to ensure safety and ease of use.
You’ll need to install the seatbelt in your electric wheelchair by using a special tool known as a seat belt pliers. The seat belt should fit your wheelchair perfectly. Ensure that your belt is placed correctly. You should place it around the waist and make sure that it goes around the back and through the armrests. In order to achieve this, try tightening one end of the belt by pulling it through the buckle but make sure that the belt still has enough room for it to move through the belt loops on your wheelchair.
In case your belt has been installed correctly, take off the backstop from the backside, and fold it back so that it doesn’t come undone when you put your chair back into place. This is very important. You don’t want to find yourself with your back facing the floor once you put your wheelchair in place.
Make sure to secure your seat belt to the base frame of the chair. You’ll need to do this using a couple of screws. Use some tape to seal the screws in place and make sure that you follow the directions for installing the screws properly. Once your seatbelt has been secured, it’s time to tighten it back up to its previous position to ensure safety.
