The Soloc belts have been designed for those with the use of one hand. The design allows the belt to be connected and released without assistance.
An effective buckle is paramount to wheelchair safety, but many users find they cannot use a belt and buckle without requiring assistance.
- 75,000 people in the UK only have the use of one arm.
- People with both hands but lack coordination with fine tasks also struggle with belts.
- People who cannot use a conventional buckle often rely on others for support.
- In trials Soloc improved the user's confidence, mobility and feelings of independence.
