This Wrap-Around Belt by Posey helps to correctly position patients and reduce sliding. It is a self-releasing Positioning Device when the strap is placed in front of the patient, but it offers the option to place the strap behind the patient and thus be used as a Restraint. The SR Wrap-Around is ideal for residents with minimal upper trunk control who require an aid to sit up during mealtime or for socialization. It can also be applied over the lower lap to help prevent sliding forward. Wheelchair Cushions or lap belts can be used in conjunction with the SR Wrap-around for extra sliding protection.It is available in four sizes in the quilted version and two sizes in the foam version. The two foam versions of the belt are made especially for temporary positioning in beds or stretchers, while the quilted versions are designed for more permanent positioning in chairs. All versions are completely machine washable.
Please note: This product is a special order and will take 2-3 weeks for delivery.Posey S-R Wrap-Around Belt Specifications
My son got me this for my birthday. I am quite old and weak but still have to work sitting on a chair sometimes. It used to cause me to have back pain sometimes even severely. Now that I have this around my waist, I feel much more comfortable and have less pain. So simple yet very comforting.

Holds real well.
This wrap around is used by my dad. He is too old that he needs help in maintaining his sitting position. It also assures us that he won't slide when he is at his chair. I would say this is a great help for old people.
