Ankle, leg, and body straps are a must-have for active wheelchair athletes. Finding the right material, fit, and ease of use has been a frequent request from some of the fittest athletes we encounter. The challenge has been to find a soft material that is safe and secure, yet also able to permit quick transitions and fast adjustments.
We developed a strap utilizing seat belt material, wrapped in 4MM Neoprene to assure protection from scrapes and scratches. We believe this is the best option on the market today.
We've added a metal D-ring on the end of the strap to aid dexterity, which is particularly helpful for athletes with limited grip, hand, and finger movements.
Wrap a body strap around the mid-torso for movements that require leaning forward or performing pull-ups in the chair.
With the figure-eight extra-large sizes of strap, wrap a loop of the strap around a chair and the other around the athlete's body. This allows a full forward lean without risk of falling from the chair while picking up heavy objects.
Use a leg strap to secure legs during pull-ups, ring dips, or muscle-ups. This strap keeps legs from flailing and adds an additional layer of security to the wheelchair athlete when performing athletic movements.
Always use straps in a safe manner and never rely entirely on straps for your safety. Lift smart and within your limits at all times.
